Happy Chinese New Year!
Although it was only last month that I wrote about the prevalence of streets closed to accommodate weddings and other special events, I couldn’t resist demonstrating again the gap between the wealthy and the wanting.
On an hour’s walk between two Phnom Penh neighborhoods, I was struck by how different were the two tented shelters shown here.
What the smaller party says to me is that the tradition remains to the extent affordable of seriously commemorating the love that two individuals have for each other as well as their hopes for living a long and happy life together.
We can only hope along with them.
