Monsoon is Here

It's the wet season again here in Cambodia. Gone were the days when my mood changes together with the weather. When it was raining, I almost always felt depressed.

But not anymore now. I guess it has something to do with age? Or maybe I was really depressed then? 

Whatever. I actually like the rain now.

Last Monday (the other week), after an hour's worth of rain, the street was flooded already. EJ, like any kid, was happy to see lots of water on the street. He even wants to "swim" in the street!

Along Street 51

Along Street 360

The car was still fine when we were in street 360. But when we turned to street 63, the driver said the car couldn't pass through anymore. When I looked ahead, two cars were stuck in the middle of that street. Uh-oh.

Like I said above, I like the rain now. What I don't like is the eventual flood that comes along with it. A heavy one hour rain is sure to make some streets non-passable, so what more if it rains the whole day?

Luckily, I don't remember the rain to last the whole day here.
