Last Day in Cambodia

After a very full 6 weeks, I’m making my way back to the states tomorrow. Recent Highlights include:

Watching many firework displays along the riverside in Phnom Penh: the old King’s birthday, the new King’s financee, Independence Day from French…

Had a minor accident leaving Siem Reap. Had to stop our car suddenly to avoid a pedestrian and were immediately rear-ended by a motorcycle. Although damage was very minimal, the police were on the scene immediately. One hour and $15 later, we were back on the road.

Stopped at the famous 1000 year old bridge on the way back…still used and often holds heavy traffic ranging from ox carts to 6 people on a moto.
