I had the privilege of watching the sun rise (and sunsets, too) over the horizon during my stay in Ratanakiri. I and a colleague got up early in the morning and have a front seat view of the lake and the sunrise.

APAD 203: Sunset in Ratanakiri

After so many weeks, I’m back to blogging. Sorry folks, I was away.
In fact, I was in Ratanakiri province for Operation Smile Cambodia’s surgical mission there.

Ratanakiri has changed since the last time I was here (2002) but it has retained its rural charm. It’s the “winter” season there; the weather so much cooler than in Phnom Penh. At night, temperature dipped at about 15C. At one point, the parents of our patients built a bonfire in the hospital yard to keep them all warm.

Anyways, I want to share this beautiful sunset in Ratanakiri. The sun was slowly falling down the horizon, slowly hiding behind the hills of Ratanakiri. It was a lovely sight.

APAD 316: Sunset over Tuol Kork

Saturday afternoons have become kite-flying time for us in the hood. When I say “us” it includes the neighbourhood kids who are in my husband’s English class and their siblings, apart from me, my husband and my younger brother.

Last week we started at 5.30pm. Surprisingly the sun was still up. The kids love this weekly activity because it not only engages them to speak English but they also get to fly kites (made by my husband) and chase them while flying low. It is a different kind of thrill for them, something these kids have not done as they are mostly occupied with computer and video games at home.

While they were busy running around, I noticed the beautiful sky. The sun’s golden rays were starting to fade as darkness started to creep in to make way for the darkness to envelop the sky.

Love the silhouette of the houses against the dramatic sky.

We’re doing it again tomorrow. I hope it doesn’t rain like last week so I can take another beautiful sunset.

Kampot limestone mountains

This limestone mountains is still in Kampong Trach district of Kampot province, on the same highway leading to Kep.

The following structures lie in a state of disrepair and oblivion, a sad reminder of the once glorious past.
