Life on Sab River

This was one of my first photos that I took in Cambodia. After dropping off my bag at the hotel in Phnom Penh I went straight to the river front to get first sights of this country. I saw this family fishing on the river, going back and force along the shore. At one point they got closer to where I was standing, one of the guys dropped into the water and planted some kind of nets into it. Then he got back into the boat and they took off, out of my view.

Friday Mystery Photo

I’m still around folks. Just took a little break from posting over the last couple weeks.

So this place is super challenging to know. First you have to be in this part of the world, you also need to have special access to this specific area. Well, as you can see many folks are there and I got there as well, so while I’m very special (to a few people), this is not like some type of exclusive club. Still very few people would probably know where it is or ever been there. Have you?

Weekend Update: Tough one for sure. I’d have no clue where it is if not to walk around this place. I might even not know it if I was in that general area, as I was there twice and on the first visit I didn’t come to this end of the lounge. Yep, just said it, it is a lounge. At Doha International airport. I got my way into it by having sapphire status with OneWorld, which is Qatar Airways is part of. So this lounge is huge, I’m standing at one end of it and it probably 150-200 meters to the other end from here, in between with all kind of cool areas to have nice time on some comfy chairs. Free water, free beer, free food for hungry travelers. I had five hour layover here on my way to Cambodia and couple hours on the way back. It is nice to have some perks once in a while and get that special treatment!

Dauphin Island

I took this on a windy cold day. Doesn’t look like it is cold isn’t it?

Hungry Fish

The cool part of taking photos is to be able to look back and see where I have been on some specific day and if I did anything cool.

This photo was taken last year today, as it happens I was in East Boston, taking some sunset photos, none of which have been posted yet, they were all right, but yet to inspire me in any way to process and post any of them. As I was heading back to the car I saw this scene, full moon, with clear skies and that stupid looking fish staring at it like in some kind of trance, I just had to take this photo and it resonated today more than sunset shots I took a few minutes before.

Today I’m at home in NC, last year I was in Boston. It would be interesting to see where I’m going to be this day next year.

Friday Mystery Photo

There are two US States in this photo, divided by that river. Is it a good enough clue to tell us where it is?

Food Karma

Next week I’ll be in Cambodia and I have no idea what to expect, but I’ll probably see all kind of different food out there. Probably nothing like this. For sure, not with English neon signs in the small window. Maybe I’m wrong and they have plenty of Beijing Ducks hanging around different restaurants, like some kind of hanged mummies. With plenty of neon signs, not just in Khmer but Chinese and English as well. Can’t wait to find out.

Zehnder’s Famous

Last week we went for dinner at Frankenmuth Zehnder’s Famous Chicken Dinners for some family style German dinner. The table was loaded with bread, mashed potatoes, coleslaw and a few other items I can’t remember. Then chicken showed up with some schnitzels and we really got loaded on some food. Beer was good, but they don’t seems like do the German restaurant “Ziggy-Zaggy-Ziggy-Zaggy-Oy-Oy-Oy”
