Cambodia is an agricultural country, and people tend to sleep and rise early. Plus for decades staying out late was really not a wise choice. So it’s a real blast to see huge numbers of people visiting the waterfront, out until the wee hours. Lots of people but no fights, no scenes, just the world’s most well-behaved crowd milling around.

Some news coverage of the action:

Still plenty of photos, maybe I’ll ‘retroblog’ them on the prior dates of the festival just to keep them in some kind of order.

    Beautiful photos. Makes the candles on the ocean here in Sville look quite insignificant in comparison!
