View from the Balcony

The construction next door wasn't the only thing we watched from the second floor. Early one morning while we were having coffee on the balcony, we found ourselves with front-row seats at a wedding procession bound for a large villa several blocks down the street. The groom's family and friends, bearing gifts for the bride's family, assembled in front of Jimmy and Nine's building.

It took a little while for everyone to arrive and take their places.

Men were dressed in suits or shirt and tie, and the women wore traditional Cambodian dress.

The official photographers recorded the occasion before everyone marched slowly down the street to the home of the bride's family.

I'm sure it was quite an occasion!
