February 16, 2016

Good Morning,
I just had the most delicious breakfast.  I can't get enough of the mango here, it is in season and spectacularly delicious.

Here are some photos from yesterday:

I took a Tuk Tuk ride around Phnom Penh to reacquaint myself with the city.  I am amazed at how much it has changed in five years.  Go to this link and you can ride along with us: the traffic patterns here are much different than home. When I came five years ago it was hard for me to see the rhythm of it all, but now it feels familiar.  Go to this link and you can read a vignette I wrote in my SMWP class I took this summer 

After I returned from the Tuk Tuk ride I had a couple of meetings and then we went to the Royal Palace to explore.  We returned to the hotel for a nap (I am really tired from the time change).  Once we relaxed a bit we headed to the dorm to visit with our university students.  I brought them some of the school supplies you donated and they were very appreciative.  We had a great visit and did a round like we do in class where everyone says something-the prompt for our conversation had two questions: 1) If you could only eat one snack food for the rest of your life what would it be 2) If you were an animal what would you be and why? 

Lastly, we had dinner at a restaurant Malis which serves delicious Cambodian food before we returned back to Villa Langka full and tired : )

I hope you all are having a wonderful break,
Ms. Brewer
