Four Photos for Your Amusement and Appreciation

Lucky Enough To:

Delight in Mirth!

A few years ago, I was lucky enough to volunteer with Habitat for Humanity in Siem Reap, Cambodia. It was a wonderful, touching, humbling experience. An experience that definitely made one appreciate what one has.  The people we met had so little, but they were so loving and welcoming. While this journey lent itself to so many occasions of gratitude, I thought I would make today’s post about moments of mirth and laughter, an appreciation of which the Cambodians enjoy. 

“Teach us delight in simple things, and mirth that has no bitter springs.”

Rudyard Kipling

“It is more fitting for a man to laugh at life than to lament over it.”


Motorcycle Mania

The man sleeping on the motorcycle truly amazed me. I was fascinated by both his balance and the fact that he could actually fall asleep, with the noise and traffic all around him. I still chuckle when I look at this photo.

Now, I am truly a city girl and I do get teased by my friends who grew up in the country, but I doubt that even they have seen a pig on a motorcycle! This poor doomed pig, being taken to market, was still alive and squealing all the way!

“To market, to market, to buy a fat pig. Home again, home again, jiggety-jig.”

A children’s popular nursery rhyme.

Signs of the Times

I came upon the sign on the left at Angor Wat. I loved the delightful way the sign was translated into English.

The mirthful menu, found on a side street in Siem Reap, is a clever reflection on the variety of tourists visiting the area.
