Cambodian Flooding

Pictures of the Flooding.. and other pictures from my trip

Since I have been spending most of my time in my room lately just browsing the internet - I am getting better, my fever has dropped but I still have my cough - I saw a picture on an MSNBC article today and thought I would share it with you all.

Although I did not take the first picture below, nor do I know exactly where it was taken, this was the view I had when I was flying over Cambodia last week. The flood went as far as I could see in the distance, and stopped barely on the outskirts of Phnom Penh. It is hard to describe what it is like looking down over floods from an airplane, but this picture captures it. It is funny because I wanted to grab my camera for a picture, but right as I was about to get up, the captain came on and said get ready for landing, and the seatbelt sign lit back up. I wish I had kept my camera with me and not put it in the overhead bin, but this picture will do for now.


Also, I've added pictures of the powerlines in Cambodia that I didn't show before. When I started taking pictures of the powerlines, James could not understand why I found them funny. He asked 'Do you not have power lines at home?'. Yes we have them, no we do not have mangled masses of them hanging on every corner like this! I have never seen so many wires connected to just one pole. This really makes me appreciate the burying of wires that happens in so many of our neighborhoods.
