first impression

7 Jan

Jum-riab- sua! (Hello!)

First full day of being here in Cambodia. Its hot, but not covered-in-sweat hot. Today we went to the grocery store, took a Khmer lesson to learn basic words and phrases, took tuktuks (little motorbike carts) down to the riverfront for dinner.  So much to take in. I am still processing layover time, foods, basic language and directions, cultural behaviors, our purpose here. And my first impression of Cambodia: so far so good! 🙂

The first photo is of our hotel, the view and our classroom. Oh and me.
