DAY 3, SUNDAY (January 6th)
No school today, so I sat on the terrace for breakfast overlooking a lazy muddy river and a roadway busy with motorbikes and bicycles, cars and pedestrians and tuc-tucs (rickshaws pulled by motorbikes). I asked a lone breakfaster if he was the hotel guest volunteering at ACODO. He wasn’t but we chatted for a short while; he’s a restauranteur, doing some mentoring with young people in Siem Reap. The ACODO table “fessed up” and I was invited to join them. I got helpful tips about teaching at the orphanage from Glenn, Kirsty and their two teens. We planned to meet with another volunteer at supper on Tuesday, as it was their last night.
I checked out the pool, met some of the staff- (sorry if I slip and say family!), and decided to wander the town to visit the market. With 2 hours walking in, I sat for a cold draft beer + wi-fi for 50 cents. A bit more walking developed an appetite for ‘street food’, then time to try to rest off that jet lag.
