Busy doing nothing

The monsoon keeps us indoors with only a brief sojourn to the markets of Battambang

rain 31 °C

Battambang, Cambodia

Waking to glorious blue skies, the first we had seen for many days, we avowed to spend time enjoying the weather. Yet by the time breakfast was finished the monsoon had arrived, much earlier than usual. For two hours the rain fell. With no necessity to venture out much of our day was spent gentle relaxing, recharging our batteries from recent travel exertions.

By mid-afternoon with the rain diminishing we ventured into Battambang for a late lunch and a wonder through the locals markets of Psar Nat and Boeung Chhouk. Wat Damrey Sar provided a brief temple diversion but Battambang is clearly the fourth tourist destination in Cambodia, although the second largest city in Cambodia.

With the famed French colonial architecture visited we returned to our hotel. A quiet evening in preparation for our return to Phnom Penh in the morning.
