I’ve been in Phnom Penh for about five days and just like my time in the last couple of places that I’ve been, the time just seems to have flown by. We got here on Friday and we are leaving tomorrow (Tuesday) for Sihanoukville. Sihanoukville is a coastal town in Cambodia. I was there back when I made my way through the country about three years ago, but if the last few cities are any indication; I probably won’t recognize Sihanoukville very much.
Wow! I can’t believe it’s been so long since I’ve made a post to my blog. If my math is correct, it’s been something like two weeks since my last entry. I’m writing this about a week and a half from my time in PP, so the entry won’t contain a lot of details. I really want to get caught up to the location I’m at now.
Phnom Penh was fun if not really that interesting. I guess the fact that I was traveling with Sofiya made it different from my usual itinerary when I get into a city. Just having someone else around doesn’t put a rush on seeing things or getting to the next destination too quickly. We did go to some places, but generally speaking we just lived in the city for about a week. The days we wandered around and the nights we usually spent on the waterfront and going out for dinner. Except for the tuk-tuk drivers who were relentless in trying to get us to ride with them, the rest of the people were kind.
We left Phnom Penh on Sunday and got to the coast that afternoon. Sihanoukville really hadn’t changed too much and it was nice to get away from the chaos of the big city.
