It’s the third day of the Pchum Ben Festival (Festival of the Dead, or, the Festival of the Ancestors) and the faithful Buddhists troop to the wats (temples) to offer food, incense and prayers for their dead family members and relatives.
It was a beautiful warm, sunny day this morning – perfect for visiting the wat. But later in the day, the sky darkened, the heavens opened and out came the rain. People scampered everywhere looking for shelter. It was a mad, mad dash!
