Reunion time

Meeting up with Soriya at Luk Luk BBQ
I was so happy to see so many old friends tonight with a reunion at Luk Luk BBQ, in the street behind PizzaWorld. The restaurant has been open for a month and the owner, Tima and his family were celebrating the return of his brother Sam, and family, from two years studying in Australia. They are the brothers of Thea, my great pal who passed away twelve years ago and a host of other faces I recognised were there to join in the fun and food bonanza. They included Soriya, who I first met as a football-playing tomboy in Kampot more than a decade ago and who I saw again at Lina's wedding a couple of years ago. She's now moved to study in Phnom Penh. It was lovely to be so warmly welcomed by people I have known for so many years, including Auntie Vourch, who I lauded in To Cambodia With Love for her magnificent Khmer chicken curry. 
Great to see Sam back from two years studying in Australia
