Hey guys, sorry, this is a no picture post. My camera is kind of on the fritz and I really just wanted to give you all a roundup of what I was up to.
So, I am in Phnom Penh, Cambodia right now! Just got here today. I’m staying in a mid-range business style hotel for the night because it was the only thing available, but it’s pretty nice. Has a tv and hot water, all I need. My first impressions of Phnom Penh: horrible traffic and really, really poor. Also, let’s not forget that Phnom Penh is pretty much one of the sex tourism capitals of the world. I saw this super young looking Cambodian girl, she looked like she was 16 but who knows, with this OLD white dude on the plane, and realized this probably the lightest of what I might be seeing. The plane ride was just filled with all of these dirty old single Western guys, and it was pretty obvious what most were making their trip to Phnom Penh for. I questioned coming to Phnom Penh, but I truly feel like being here and getting a glimpse of life here (for better or worse) is key to understanding South East Asia. So tomorrow, I’ve arranged for my trip to visit the killing fields, S21 and other places of historical importance here. It’s gonna be an interesting weekend.
