This post recaps my sixth day traveling back in Cambodia during this year’s Spring Break.
Asleep early meant arisen early. I started my sixth day walking to Otres Village, where my goal was to eat a substantial breakfast.
The fully-blossomed flowers were gorgeous and unattended. Except by me, of course.
My meditation view:
Styrofoam covered in barnacles.
That gorgeous red-brown mud that sits so well atop the surface of Cambodia. I will never forget it, and hopefully never have to walk in it, again!
From within the Khmer Family Restaurant in Otres Village, a convenience store and restaurant combined, where I would consume with delight some of the local rice porridge.
Since I had the entire day to myself and Otres, and I was feeling exhausted from the sunburn, I decided to spend a couple hours of the morning walking around Otres Village, seeing what was to be seen. Sadly, the majority of the village seemed to be occupied by hippy-esque foreigners, which, though interesting, didn’t really satisfy me.
The architecture, however, was very satisfying. I don’t think this level of design exists in much of the “rural” areas of Cambodia.
I only saw a couple of water buffalo on the trip. Here is one:
And here is another:
A tuk-tuk operating as a clothing vendor:
And that’s where my camera’s photos end for the day. After my trip to the village, I went back to the coast and spent the day meditating and reading. I then went to an Italian restaurant, Papa Pippo, where I ate delicious gnocchi, and then ended up getting food poisoning. It was so sad, because this was the restaurant I wanted to attend the previous night (but couldn’t get a seat because of Trivia Night) and couldn’t get a seat, and then I ended up eating the delicious food and drinking the wine and then getting sick. Boo. Basically after eating, I strolled the beach a bit more and then headed in and slept to the morning. No more pictures from the camera, sadly, but here are some from the cell phone:
There are approximately 10 days worth of photos. This has been day 6.
