We thoroughly enjoyed our recent visit to Cambodia.
In a nut shell: we spent a few days in Phnom Penh and the rest of the week in Siam Reap (and between those two cities). The food was great (somewhat similar to Thai cuisine but less spicy), the weather pretty good (given that it was currently rainy season), the people friendly, the roads and drivers rather scary and the sights were fabulous ….. take a look for yourselves (sorry about not editing the photos….but ‘done is better than perfect’ right?):
Here are some of the ingredients responsible for the delicious curry dish called amok:
I always find that time spent discovering new lands, foods and culture also opens up the door to re-discovering/re-evaluating one’s daily life back home. During this vacation I reflected on our new life in Shanghai and ‘recharged my batteries’…. I feel much stronger and ready to enjoy our time here and to handle the challenges that present themselves.
