Cambodia

Slowly making our way back to Thailand.

sunny 27 °C

The flight from Kuala Lumpur to Phnom Penh took only 1 1/2 hour and I was really happy to have all flights in Asia behind me! The airport is located
Just outside the city so getting there by Tuk-tuk was easy.

We were surprised to see how many new houses had been built there since our last visit, about a year ago.
The country seems to do very well, at least if all the ongoing constructions is a sign of prosperity, even some of the Tuk-tuk drivers
had invested in modern electrical tuk-tuks!

The next morning we went up early and took a long walk before it was too hot, we have been here many times before and we didn't have any special plans, just walking around.

We visited a temple where people were gathered to give offerings, it looked like a really good and festive meal!

This little girl looked like she was very bored and I thought she was so cute so I had to take a photo of her.

We continued our walk and entered a park where some very young students were posing for a photo and I was asked to join.

There is a lot of Monks walking the streets, sometimes they stop by a restuarant and if they are lucky they will get something to eat.

Unfortunately I got a bad cold and fever, so for some days I just stayed in bed, Hank feeding me food from restuarants around the hotel.

Before we left Phnom Penh we went on an evening tour on the river, it was very nice and pretty.

We took a bus to Kampot where we met up with Chen, a Cambodian guy we learned to know when he was working as a manager in a resort on Koh Chang. He now lives in Kampot and we spend a couple of nice days/evenings with him.

After Kampot we went to Kep to eat crab at the Crab market and spend some days in a resort with a nice pool.

Then we decided to take a bus to Sihanoukville, passing time before we can enter Thailand again.

Strange food items on this menu, better be safe and order a cup of black coffee :-)

It seems like we can get Pizza here!

One night we had Barbeque on the beach.

The beaches in Sihanoukville is quite pretty, but it's too sad they don't keep them clean!!
Tonight is our last night in Cambodia, tomorrow we will have a 12 hour journey before we're back on Koh Chang in Thailand!
