Have we mentioned that it's hot here lately? Cambodia felt hot when we arrived in October. In the 6 months we have been here, the weather seems to have only gotten hotter! We haven't had more than a sprinkling of rain in over 5 months, and we seem to only have an endless stream of hot and dusty days. Just when we thought that the city couldn't look more dried out and dusty, trees all over Phnom Penh started to bloom. Beautiful purple flowers and trees with hanging clusters of yellow blossoms continue to bloom brighter and brighter. We were not expecting all of this spring beauty during a season when it is well over 100 degrees each day here!
