Yesterday, we finally had rain after several weeks of extreme heat.

The rain was strong enough, with a bit of wind, too.

Having had 38Cs in the past weeks, this is really a welcome change. A cool relief from PhnomPenh’s summer heat. This is probably the first big rain in a long time… six months, more or less, if I am not mistaken.

Just 30mins of rain and our street is already flooded. Why? Because some genius cemented the drains. Drat.
