7. Merry Christmas to all my readers, wherever you are.

Happiness, health, and good luck!

The images below may be misleading: Christmas decorations, Christmas music and festivities are not displayed or can be heard on every street corner in this country, in fact very rarely. Cambodia is still in  essence a Buddhist country, although religion is far weaker than in Thailand, for example. Under Khmer Rouge regime it is said that more than 50,000 monks were killed. Today only a few of the destroyed temples are being rebuilt and public attendance is low.
