More fun photos of Cambodia

Sweet little love seat, with a view
I have an APARTMENT!
Queen size bed
It is a fully furnished studio.  It had pretty much everything I needed, and the timing was perfect.
Washing Machine

A little taste of my walk home from school
Dryer ; ) 
a very small part of the journey has a sidewalk
We called these Flame trees growing up...I noticed some little girls were using the tiny little leaves to 'cook' with.  I used to do that do : ).
These are everywhere right now...just be careful the branches have huge thorns

All in all a beautiful walk...I didn't focus on the traffic or the dirt and grime of this busy 3rd world city.  I will save that for another day.  Beauty is everywhere, if we know where to look!

Pictures From Cambodia

Some sights from my first few days...

It is pretty Foreign to me...but I am learning! This a door sign for the class I am taking at the  Royal University of Cambodia, Phnom Penh.

The view from a Tuk Tuk...my favorite mode of transportation : )

Roadside haircut anyone...how about a shave?

My first attempt at baking in Cambodia...banana bread.  I made a little treat for the guest house I have been staying at.  If you are in the area stop on by for a taste. : )

My new best friend!  The high temperature every day has been in the 90's with very high humidity.  I glow all day long...really more of a glisten. : )
(Okay really more like drip)
My favorite moment so far... I was riding around town in a Tuk Tuk a bit overwhelmed with the smells and the noise of the city.  We came to a sweet little oasis, a park of sorts near the Royal Palace.  This park was filled with my favorite flowering tree.   A smile came as I saw the flowers...a sigh filled my soul as their sweet fragrance wafted through the air.  It was a little present for the day...I couldn't interrupt the moment to take a picture, but the memory is indelibly printed in my heart.

I am really glad to be here!

On my way...

Here are some pictures from my send off at my Dads just two days before I left for Cambodia! : )
