Phnom Penh Day 1: Everything Else

After we went to the killing fields, we went to Central Market, where we ran into a person wearing the same ugly Peace Corps shirt that we got before training. Thomas made a brief introduction and learned that she is a Peace Corps Cambodia volunteer, but we learned nothing else. We went on a long and winding journey to find food, and eventually kind of pointed at some stuff and ate (I wouldn’t say either of us were huge fans of whatever we ended up ordering).

Next, we went to the National Museum, where we weren’t supposed to take pictures of the art. It was basically full of Buddha statues. I’m sure we would’ve learned more if we’d been willing to pay for the audio guide, but we are still pretty pinche.

The National Museum building was pretty

Next, we ventured to the Royal Palace and saw some ornate structures.

The Victory Gate
This mural went around the entire perimeter

Even the door is incredibly detailed

I hope you enjoyed this brief photo tour. Day 2 in Phnom Penh coming soon!

    My comments here are: 1. I want to know what it was you ate even though you may not know yourself. 2. That DOOR IS SO BEAUTIFUL.

      We ate some sort of bowl with some rice noodles and leafy vegetables and chopped up egg roll looking things? I really don’t know 😂
