The streets here flood like crazy because the drainage system is not that efficient. So today I decided to snap some photos of some of the activity that was happening just outside our office on the main street.

But life still goes on and I am always amazed at the resilience of the Khmer people. Weather does not hinder them in any way. They just go about doing their business, making the best of the most difficult and challenging situations.

With this kind of rain, it is an advantage to drive some kind of SUV as tuk tuks, bicycles and motorcycles have a much harder time wading through the water.If you happen to be a pedestrian on the street, be prepared to be engulfed by a wall of water as cars or SUVs drive by.
