It is still hot and dry in Phnom Penh despite the fact that we are supposed to be already in the rainy/wet season. The heat is sweltering and one time two weeks ago I stayed outdoors flying kites for a few hours and got myself a nasty sunburn.  I’m still waiting for my sunburn to heal

Anyways, speaking of summers… summers in Cambodia meant the blossoming of the of these  flower trees around the city, called phka loeung or royal yellow flower. Aren’t they pretty?

These pretty royal yellow flowers are what cherry blossoms are in Tokyo.

I believe the summer season in the Penh is not complete without these pretty yellow blossoms! So you see, even these flower trees are confused about the weather.
