Two photos taken from almost the same spot on the Phnom Penh riverfront 7 days apart, the first on September 17 and the second this afternoon at about 4:00PM. As flooding sweeps the country, so far Phnom Penh has been spared, but the river continues to rise, near cresting the banks now. There is still no telling if the city will flood this week, but I have prepared, moving most of the stuff (or at least the most vulnerable stuff) in my house upstairs from the ground floor. Hopefully the effort will have been for naught, but still best to be prepared.
