Yesterday I was about to leave the guest house in Phnom Penh to make my road trip to Sihanoukville when suddenly the sky opened its floodgates and within minutes the streets in Phnom Penh were transformed into brown swimming pools.
I was standing there with 2 cambodian boys trying to help me with my bags, holding an umbrella and hugging my camera and laptop bag praying they or I won’t fall into the spontaneous river when I heard squeals and laughter coming from the left. I looked and there they were, kids jumping, swimming, floating happily on garbage bags!
They looked so carefree and so happy, it was hard not to start laughing and to stop minding the prospect of going waist deep into the brown cool waters. So we did, the boys and I. We shuffled our way through the water to the taxi waiting at the end of the street where the water was a bit shallower.
But not before I snapped 3 pictures risking my 7D in the pouring rain 🙂
