Today was a travel day from Phnom Penh to Siem Reap.
It started with Kim, Phil and Dylan contemplating how to say goodbye to each other.
Kim and Phil stayed in Phnom Penh two more days before flying home.
The rest of us headed back to Siem Reap for 5 more days of wonder and excitement.
Before we even left the city our van broke down. No worries, it was just another part of the adventure. And without a doubt it was the most interesting stop at a car repair shop I’d ever been a part of.
In between helping out with cables and hoses the boys who helped took a few minutes to make a few more moves in their chess (was it chess?) game. While they worked I took pictures of the van, the shop, a mom and her baby who were hanging out, the women cleaning her clothes, and anything that seemed interesting like automotive parts (especially for CJ Arnesen) and stupas. And all of this at one car repair shop. Jiffy Lube doesn’t have anything on this!
And after an hour, we were off again for a 6 1/2 hour drive back up north.
And Andrew, Dylan and Carol kicked up their heals, laughed a lot as they passed the hours together, and settled into writing Haikus about the Killing Fields and the Toul Sleng, Genocide Museum.
