Jabs, cuts and noise.

 All 3 adults in our house recently had our third jab at our commune's temple. Things have been pretty open over the last few months and were starting to feel maybe like a post-pandemic new normal. Just over a week ago on Jan 8th they found the first case of locally transmitted Omicron, I'm not sure if that will change things.

Our son finally had his lockdown locks demoted to the floor!

For about a week we have all been struggling to get enough sleep as there has been almost constant noise from multiple weddings. Soeun teaches outside so for him and his students its particularly exhausting. I've been inside with the windows closed. Lucky it is cool season.

A tree near Angkor Wat

I just read a book called 'The girl who said goodbye".  It mentions this tree! The memoir is of a Khmer women who lived through all the chaos of the 1970s and makes out alive.
