Waking up in Phnom Penh is a strange and remarquable experience.
I arrived late last night. It was already dark out, it was hot and the air thick as it had just rained. Apparently the monsoon should be over but seems to be lingering. (A result of global warming?). The tuck tuck ride in the darkness from the airport to my hotel was very far from reassuring as I could see only glimps of what seemed to be a worned down city. I went to bed anguished, completely jet lagged and unable to find sleep.
But when the sun rose, it unvailed a magical place: a city rich culturally that hustles and bustles like no other and that is home to a population with the friendliest faces :)
Day 1 was a good day 😊
