Playing Games with Words


Snail Mail

Today we received three letters and five parcels. It was a strange mix of late Birthday Cards/Gifts (from
Anita’s family and my brother and sister-in-law) and an early Christmas Card from Mum.
Postage can taken an age to get out here from the UK. These items took between two and three weeks to get here – all arrived in tact even the one with cake ingredients (which was a surprise – we imagined them to have been impounded). Part of the issue is that post to the school is collected only twice a week (Tuesday and Thursday). Having said that it seems a little quicker to post things from here to the UK. Taking approximately 10 days to travel. However, for those sending things out here I reckon you need to leave a month to be safe.

Weekly Photo Challenge – Letters 6

One more contribution to the Weekly Photo Challenge taken last year in Siem Reap, Cambodia. Both relate to food.



The Blue Pumpkin

We had a fabulous Ice Cream ‘breakfast’ in this restaurant.

Notice the script, which is in Khmer the language of Cambodia. The Khmer language has an unusual Script which is very different to ours in the West but also different to other surrounding countries.

Blue Pumpkin Restaurants make their own ice hygienically, which meant we could safely eat it.

This is  unlike many of the restaurants where ice is sawn off a larger block on the back of  a lorry by hand before being dragged through the streets into the kitchen (Yuk!).

In the same town we came across this sign advertising smoothies.

I don’t fancy number 5! Do you?

Weekly Photo Challenge: Letters 5

This image of me was produced on a Dot Matrix Printer at the Science Museum in 1977. If you look closely you will see it is composed of thousands of letters and other characters. It was quite revolutionary in it’s time – several years before printing as we know it.
