Cambodia 7/23/2010 - 9/12/2010

It's been a while since I've updated this blog. I guess school, job hunting, facebook...,for the past 6 months, have kept me away from blogging. Perhaps I should get back to blog more like I used to.


Anyway, after Singapore, my final destination is Cambodia where I spend the most time and have the most fun with my folks. This time I get to do more road trips and have the opportunity to visit a few more other provinces that I've never been to before such as Kratie, Steung Treng, Mondol Kiri, Rattanakiri and Pailin. The road infrastructure has been improved for the past 2 years since my last visit, making it possible to travel to more places inside the country. It's good to see the country progressing although, as a result, Phnom Penh gets more crowded and will need to be expanded.

However, despite the changes, I always feel I'm at home whenever I come back. I realize I never leave Cambodia and Cambodia never leaves me. I enjoy the simpler and slower-pace of life, the friendly people, the convenience of cheap eats at every corner, and, most importantly, I enjoy being surrounded by friends and family. Time does fly when you have fun. 6 weeks don't seem to be enough. Before I know it, I have to catch the flight back to Seattle.

Spent almost a year working there. I have to say that Cambodia has left a permanent impression on me. I almost feel like I was more at home there than I am back home in America.
