I have not really been blogging for a while but think it is time to change that and start again.
I spend a lot of time walking the streets of Phnom Penh, seeing the changes in the city, seeing a city moving forward without a care for what is happening to those who live there. I see many new high rise buildings, many of which are empty of people, many building just appear to be thrown up haphazardly without any thought to the local surroundings or planning, building because we can.
I have had little time to update the blog, doing other things but am going to try harder.
I have been following these elections with dumbfounded interest. The unbelievable naevity of local people simply amazes me. They believe what politicians tells them, seamingly without question.
Sam Rainsey (CNRP), makes lots of promises for changes to the plight of ordinary Cambodia, I hope he is able to fulfill the promises, I somehow have some doubts … but the people believe all he tells them. Only time will tell.
Meanwhile the CPP continues to run the place with a fist of Iron all be it in a very well made kidd glove.
