Global Gumbo

A friend, Kathy, has a love affair going with the city of Vancouver, B.C. It’s been her preferred holiday destination for years and years, and I wouldn’t be surprised if she moves there one day. I bring it up, because another friend, Lowie, mentioned that it was ranked as the most livable city in the world.

What’s perhaps even more interesting to me is that the second most livable city in the world is Fukuoka in Japan, my next destination. After the raw edginess of Phnom Penh, I can honestly say that I’m looking forward to a little livableness!

Oh, and speaking of Lowie, she’s here in Phnom Penh for business. We had a chance to meet up yesterda, and had a lovely time. We walked along the river and visited Wat Phnom. The smell of burning paper was omnipresent as it was a holiday of some kind, and every household was making offerings. Wat Phnom was quite busy as well with lots of people burning incense and praying.

Later in the evening, we joined Joy and another friend of their’s, Teresa, for dinner at a place called Kwest. The menu was a mixture of Asian and Italian. In keeping with the spirit of the place, I had spring rolls and spaghetti bolognese. Nice!
