New Year's Eve in Cambodia
David Calamaro shared the following update from Cambodia today:
"We spent much of the day driving from Phnom Penh to Battambang, the second largest city in Cambodia. On the way we stopped by a roadside eatery for some noodles, fried rice, and delicious stir-fried Morning Glory. We made sure to dodge the 50 or so crocodiles being kept by the owner for eventual transport to China, where (apparently) crocodile soup is a hit. When driving through the countryside, the fact that most of the Cambodian population is made up of agricultural workers really hits home.
"About 30 minutes outside of Battambang, we spent some time a Phnom Sampeau, which was a former Khmer Rouge execution site known now as the “killing caves.” The site is now fairly popular for local and international tourists, as the location, with its scenic overlook of the countryside, also houses a Buddhist temple. Phnom Sampeau included our first monkey sightings, and our students also mingled with another Cambodian student group touring the site; thrilled with one another, they attempted to exchange social media accounts...youth are youth wherever you go.
"Well, we are at our hotel now, 7:30 PM, just hours away from New Years and the town is jumping. Off to dinner and to celebrate…Happy New Year, Philly!"
