Where I stayed
As we explored the city we became aware that there were so many more cars here (especially 4x4’s) than any other SE Asian city we have been to, besides maybe Bangkok
We took a detour on our way back to the hostel, yes an early night for us tonight, through the busy food market which we had passed when we arrived. Wandering around a food market is one of our favourite things to do when we’re in a different country, it is just so fascinating to see the vast array of different produce on display and all the unusual smells (some which I find hard to stomach, breathe through the mouth Erica, breathe through the mouth). We watched as live fish were gutted on the pavement and chickens complete with head were spit roasted. Andrew also claims he saw sparrows on one skewer but I can’t verify that, but I wouldn’t be surprised. Also there were lots of slabs of meat baking in the sun which made for quite a pungent aroma around some stalls, nice.
We managed to leave the market without buying any snacks for the walk home, no sparrows tonight thank you and watched a few episodes of Entourage on the lap top in our room before we fell asleep. I think it’s going to take all the strength we can muster to get through tomorrow, a very emotional but very necessary part of a trip to Cambodia.
