The New Summer Palace Part 2

Just some new photos. Took another trip out there yesterday by myself whilst the wife slept soundly. Left at 9a.m and it took 20 minutes. Although it was stinking hot in Phnom Penh, there was a lovely breeze on the Bassac river and when I opened up all the shuttered windows and doors. the house was breezy and light. Heavenly. Later on that afternoon I took a ride on the Airblade down the western side of the Tonle Bassac ( Takmeo ) looking for other houses and found one but in general that side of the river is not as nice as the eastern side.

Oh – and a big thanks for the messages of support from family back home about  my efforts to create a safe welcoming space away from the city for my family and friends. Very encouraging.
