I’m a bit behind with my posts and this week has been an eventful one that I’ll update you on soon. But I’m going to pick up from my last post with our return from Thailand.
We flew into Phnom Penh and got a tuk tuk to the city and one of the first things I saw was a motorbike in the back of a car (it’s good to be back in Cambodia). Sadly the pic is on stolen iPod but more about that in the next post too.
The reason for flying to Phnom Penh was to meet up with my NGO, VBC, from Siem Reap to distribute food to hundreds of children who wait outside the hospital from the early hours of the morning, waiting to see a doctor. One thousand meals barely covered the amount of kids in the line but in all I think everyone ended up with food. You can find the Journo’s more detailed post here.
After a quick stop for a bite to eat for ourselves, we were into Sinn’s minivan and on the way back to Siem Reap. The first 70 or 80 kilometres of this highway is rat shit at best so when we finally got onto some bitumen it was of some relief. After a night on the beer it’s a good chance to catch up on some sleep.
About an hour out of Siem Reap our driver was starting to feel a little tired and wanted someone else to drive. Sinn exits the driver’s seat to allow Jason to take over for the remainder of the trip. After a few kilometres Sinn was back in the driver’s seat after Jason had turned the gearbox into a container full of iron filings and broken gear box bits.
We were finally back home safe and sound after about a five hour trip. A little weary and looking for a feed and a nana nap. Felt so good to get home after the trip to Thailand, then the road trip, and have a beer or two at Two D’s then a nice evening on the couch.
Stay tuned for some adventure in Battambang and the saga that has been our last week.
