Hello and happy weekend!
Today’s picture takes us to the heart of Cambodia in a little village south of Siem Reap (known for the Angkor Wat temples, don’t worry, i will post a photo of them soon enough). I was on my way to a homestay, where we spent the night with some very friendly completely non-english speaking people, their three chickens and the pig. From the moment we crossed this rickety hand-made wooden bridge on our bikes, we were swamped by young children all desperate to use the word ‘hello’ and to hear it back sent them into rapturous joy.
If you ever travel to Cambodia or the surrounding regions, i encourage you to partake in a homestay while you are there. It lets you experience the community and get to know the people far better than a stay in a hotel or hostel could ever do, and their hosting is legendary! If you are blond, ginger or a light brunette however, be prepared for a lot of hair stroking. And thats before the kids get involved!
See you tomorrow, where we shall hop over the border for a snapshot of Vietnam! If you want more information on Cambodia, let me know and i can either make it a post soon or get back to you directly. Future posts will cover Siem Reao, Sihanoukville, and Phnom Penh.
