Cambodia

this keyboard sucks so im going to make it quick. cambodia has been great! we spent yesterday doing all the touristy things in phnom penh like seeing the palace and silver pagoda and going to the tuol sleng (spelling wrong i know) and killing fields.

Highlights included:

1. having a tour guide to explain the palace - cambodia is a kingdom
2. buying five dollar birks from the russian market and two dollar polo shirts from the central market
3. sharing one motorcycle between a driver, me and darcy - tight fit!
4. getting a private tour from our quebecois friend's new cambodia tuk tuk driver boyfriend
5. pushing his tuk tuk along the road when it stopped running due to bad gasoline
6. teaching beggar children to play limbo
7. eating at happy herb's pizza - getting happy

Today we splurged on a nice hotel with a pool after a long trip by bus to siem reap. getting off the bus was the worst moment of the trip thus far. we were harassed by a more intense swarm of tuk tuk drivers than i've ever seen! We survived and swam off the stress. i just ate a delecious coconut chicken dish called chicken amok. a national delicacy though more often made with fish.

tomorrow we will meet our tuk tuk driver at five in the morning to see the sun rise over angkor wat. we'll pay him five dollars each to take us around for the day.

dad, thanks for letting me know about the car insurance.

Mom, thanks for the email - i'll write again sooner than later!
