Greetings from Phnom Penh where I am for two nights. It’s the capital of Cambodia.
The first night I had a fantastic meal at Khmer Surin eating Som Tam and Fish Amok.
Yesterday a tour of The Royal Palace which is amazing, the National Museum, Wat Phnom, the Central Market and a look at the river where I had another good meal at a huge restaurant called Botha Phnom Penh also known as Titanic where tour groups seem to go understandably.
Last night I went to a traditional dance show at the National Museum followed by dinner at the Friends restaurant. Both are focused on helping local disadvantaged people and the dance company training young people in traditional dance which was lost during the terrible times in the 1970’s.
So today off home and I must say unusually I won’t be sad to get home. Perhaps it’s the heat and I can’t cope with it as well as I could earlier. Also I am disappointed that although it was advertised as a tour I am the only one on it. In a country like this it is nice to have company.
See you soon
