The White Building

Here are a few views of the famous (or infamous) White Building in Phnom Penh. The block of apartments, which was originally painted white, was built in the early 1960s to be low-cost housing for lower- and middle-class Cambodians. Like the rest of the city, it was abandoned during the Khmer Rouge years, but since then has become known as a place for “artists” to live. It also has a reputation for being a center of prostitution and drugs. Oddly enough, just down the road sits the shiny, brand-new monument to prosperity, Aeon Mall. The contrast must sting, because many in the government believe it is time for the White Building to be demolished.

Our New Home!

From our Cambodia blog — livingonthefarside:

Well, as I write this, it’s Saturday morning in the kingdom of Cambodia. Last Thursday we moved into our apartment here in the area of Phnom Penh known as Tuol Kork (don’t ask; I don’t know what that means). The apartment is furnished and we only had four large suitcases and a few carry-ons, so moving wasn’t a huge chore. Within a day we had most everything cleaned (it was not move-in ready) and our stuff mostly put away. It’s a bit impersonal now, but as we get more settled and the rest of our stuff comes in May, it’ll look a little more like us, I’d guess.

Here are a few pictures so you can get an idea of what it looks like, if you’re interested in such things.

Here’s a view from the “living room.” The kitchen is on the right, the door on the left is the entrance. The door to the left of that is the second bedroom, with the second bathroom’s door next to that.image

This one is from the opposite end. You can see the balcony, living room area, dining area, and the door to the master bedroom on the right.image

This is, hands down with no exaggeration, one of the most inspiring and heartfelt collections of advice I have read.
