Cambodia – Anything Can Change in a Blink of an Eye

Anything can happen in Cambodia – life is very uncertain and therefore different (and possibly exciting) to what we are used to living in the modern world. This is why for many Cambodia is an attractive location for those wanting to set up an alternative lifestyle.

On returning from Thailand after 2 months in Bangkok we were fairly surprised to see a new house right next door to us.

A few years ago we would have probably freaked out and felt it was the end of our serene and secluded world. This time though my wife and I just looked at each other and laughed in that #onlyincambodia way. I think after now over a decade living in this country you become more and more immune to minor annoyances and surprises. Basically you have to other wise the country will win and you’ll be constantly frustrated.

It turns out there is only a middle-aged lady and her daughter living there and they seem very nice, quiet and easy going.

I suppose it’s a good reminder though that life in Cambodia is never defined and things can change for the better or worse in the blink of an eye.
