The staff has been so friendly and very accommodating. The rooms at very nice and the pool is amazing.
We made a new friend already from the Chicago area. Austin was in the same flight from Seoul and checked in at the same time. We started chatting with him in the club lounge over breakfast. He is here in on business for the week selling pipes and fittings.

Luckily for me though, I had a lot of Dong left over from Vietnam and I was able to use that. Whether ...
... my day more or less flying by the seat of my pants, deciding on a rough morning itinerary at the last minute. I walked to the National Museum, passing by the eclectic street activities of Phnom Penh. By now, I was an expert in jay walking through traffic, even on a wide road equivalent to four lanes (remember, no road markings!). It's actually really easy to cross the road without pedestrian crossings (rare as hens' teeth). For starters, no vehicle seems to drive over 50 or 60 km/h ...
