What to do if the neighbours have a wedding?

28 Jan

The Wedding Tent (I want one like that!)

Hm, what is the ‘interculturally sensitive’ action when the neighbour of your Cambodian guesthouse gets married: meaning 120 decibel (very) Khmer music starting at 5am during 2 days, to attract the good spirits…?

  • tell them spirits don’t exist
  • put in ear plugs (to reduce the 120 Db to 80)
  • write down (as they wouldn’t hear you with the noise) that maybe 50 decibel would also be enough to attract the good luck?
  • act out (as they wouldn’t hear you with the noise) that 100 Db damages your ears
  • give them a few of your favourite mp3 to add to the mix
  • go join the party
  • any other suggestions?
