This post recaps my eighth day traveling back in Cambodia during this year’s Spring Break.
What happened to day 7, you might ask? Food poisoning happened. I ended up taking the bus from Sihanoukville to Phnom Penh, and then ended up meeting my friend Rath, and then got dinner with a bunch of friends before passing out at my friends’ home. The next day, I was to run/teach a full day long training for Cambodian librarians, at University of Cambodia. The training, which covered Community Leadership, Teaching and Instruction, and Providing Service, featured over 40 attendees and was streamed live on Facebook. Though, like other trainings I’ve run in Cambodia, it was not without problems, it did have a lot of positive response and overall I enjoyed the results as a 100% volunteer. The images below, which will go without description (except for the last image), are all from the training.
Not to be overkill about it, but here are the cell phone pictures I took from throughout the day. First, the entrance to the beautiful University of Cambodia building:
Images of the school’s library (so bright; so clean!):
And the training:
Some strange images from the lunch:
And after the training, driving back to the center of the city and seeing this bumper label on a tuk tuk:
KC “delivering” my bag down to me from his apartment:
Attending a new Kbach Gallery opening:
Some of the works within:
Seflie on a moto: me and Sok Lak, an educator pioneer in Phnom Penh who helped organizer the training:
Getting food and beverage at Mango Mango, an expensive but enjoyable venue. We did not order the herbal pork brain soup.
This drink contained too much alcohol for anyone’s good:
Molika, the organizer of the training, joined us (see below) and we finished our drinks and headed back to the Jet Night Market (where my vacation started):
Molika a willing volunteer:
And later, before I went out dancing: some Khmer food for dinner.
And finally, the place I ended up staying that night: Feeling Home.
There are approximately 10 days worth of photos. This has been day 8.
