Where I stayed
The 252

Flag of Cambodia  ,
Monday, January 24, 2011

On the 24th we woke up very early and said goodbye to Sandy and Asa and left for the airport.
We caught the plane to a place called Phnom Penh which is the capital of Cambodia.We reached our hotel which was called the 252 Hotel but our room wasn't ready so we swam for ages and ages in the pool. We also met two girls from Scotland called Fern (10) and Clover (7).They are also travelling for 7 months. We played lots of games together in the pool and had lots of fun! We went out for dinner on the river side before returning home. 

On the 25th we played in the pool for a really long time and did lots of colouring competitions with Fern and Clover again. After lunch we even organised a drawing compititon for the adults around the pool and a drawing called "Funky chicken" won. Later on Fern and Clover invited us to dinner with them and their family including their Uncle Coliin who works in Phnom Penh. We had a really yummy dinner and a chocolate pancake for pudding. At midnight we went on to another place which had a swimming pool and I borrowed a Tshirt from the staff which had the name of the place "Elsewhere" on it as I didn't have a swim costume! They let me keep it at the end of the night! Swimming at midnight was fun with our friends but I was very tired by the time we left!

On the 26th, Fern& Clover left for Vietnam. Dad & I went to visit the Royal Palace but mum had to look after Scarlett who had a ear infection! The Royal Palace was great and there were lots of temples and paintings on the walls. We also saw a family of monkeys chilling out underneath the tree in the palace grounds. Later on we went on a sunset boat ride on the Tonle Sap, which is a big lake near Phnom Penh. But it was cloudy and rainy so there was no sunset to see and we didn't even get our money back!!
