Looking back on this last week it has been surprising how much I have done. Not that I have done a lot, it was my first full week at work and had three days off due to the Water Festival which gave us three days public holidays.At work I was able to sort out and organise 2,ooo shoeboxes (filled with gifts) which will be distributed to various Churches and NGO’s throughout Phnom Penh who will pass them on to children at Christmas. All being well these should be collected next week. I also went to visit some clients in the nearby slums. It is so good to see that people do have hope despite their appalling. conditions and that many are not willing to give up but take what opportunities are given.
While cycling by the Royal Palace on Tuesday I stopped to watch some monkeys that were being fed some corn. Although they seemed quite tame I didn’t fancy getting too close to them.
