Phnom Penh, Cambodia
D had two days of business, then we were going to sightsee over the weekend - but after his 2nd day of meetings, D was running a very high temperature. So..... we flew back home immediately.
The city of Phnom Penh, the capital of the Kingdom of Cambodia, is the largest city in Cambodia. More than 2 million people live here.
They really do not have taxi's in PP so D took a tuk tuk to work. He was quite the character and spoke pretty decent English. He drove us around for the two days we were there, including taking me shopping and showing me some sights. I could not understand his name so I told him I would call him sugar - he loved this!
I had a delicious salad at The Daughters of Cambodia, a restaurant that trains and employs underprivileged women. There is a small shop downstairs selling handmade items and the cafe is on the second floor. I highly recommend it for a nice lunch. The cheese bread on the side was to die for!
Our first night we went ot a local movie theater to see The Grand Budapest Hotel. The theater was precious! Notice the bamboo sofas?
People of all ages exercise in the evening, in large groups, at the parks.
