Happy Belated Khmer New Year

Khmer New Year was exactly one month ago. I love that there are some Cambodian Buddhist temples in the DC area we can visit and have a place to celebrate that little country we love so much.
It was the first hot day of the year, so we hung out inside the wat with fellow Peace Corps volunteers we served with. And I got to see the little guy in the picture below who's birth I was able to be a part of.
We're so lucky that we have such a good group of former volunteers in the area that we can see and hang out with.

We found some of our favorite treats for sale from the booths. Bong Moan Ang is my favorite favorite Cambodian treat, it's like deliciously spiced grilled eggs; and I'm so sad to say that in the craziness of our move, we forgot to eat these. We also found some Nom Jake, which was a staple in our diet in Cambodia. We'd get them freshly fried and oozing deliciousness.  This Nom Jake wasn't as good as what we ate all over Cambodia, but talking with the woman selling it in Khmer for a minute made it all worth it.
