Half-way mark

So last Thursday, during work, the boss announces that there's going to be an office party. 6 pm rolls around and he comes up with beer and chips and says, Meeting in 5 minutes! I'm at my computer trying to make deadline and not pull my hair out from stress/frustration/annoyance, when Emily comes up to me and says, Hey, do you know what this party is for?

No, what? I respond.

It's actually for our 6-month anniversary!! she said.

Not really, of course. But it was November 3, 6 months to the day that Emily and I first arrived in Cambodia. Realizing that simultanously made me want to laugh and cry at the same time.

At a Russian restaurant on our first month anniversary. 
Siem Reap with Sokun and our awkward—but well-dressed!—driver.
This post is dedicated to Emily, the best new partner I could have for my crazy, crazy job in this crazy, crazy city.

Man. Can't believe it's been 6 months. I just teared up at work. Miss you.
