Back to Reality

I have been home to England for the last five weeks and it was lovely to see family and friends again as well as England’s green and pleasant lands.

I am here in Phnom Penh for another year and will be looking for work with another NGO for the next twelve months. Reality soon kicked in when I was picked up by my friends from the airport and driven home. It didn’t take me long to realise that I was in Cambodia as I was soon to see the people collecting rubbish in the roadside and looking for food even though it was 10.30 at night.

I was informed of the death of one of their close friends in a road accident. The girl was killed when she and her sister were knocked off their moto by a drunk driver. Her sister has two broken legs and is still in hospital. Another person was killed when he was hit by the speeding car. Unfortunately the culprit will not go to jail, or be prosecuted, or face trial as he is a high ranking police officer…and then I realised that it just another day in Cambodia…. Take every day as a blessing.
