Phnom Penh Wed' 7th

sunny 32 °C

The community we visited the previous day were celebrating their 10th year of working with state-less Vietnamese. So we helped them out a bit.

in the afternoon we headed south of Phnom Penh for about an hour and a half. Same situation as before. Across the Mekong to an island and a different community.

We travelled by Tuk-tuk to the Mekong crossing, after which it was by motor-fright. We were collected once across the river by teenagers on motor-frights. They knew that travelling quickly makes for a smooth, but not without helmets. A little scary to say the least. Thank heavens it was only a 10min' trip.
two sisters work with the people in the community whom they described as a bit wild. After the motorfright ride - no argument. Got a tour of the local church and area before heading back to the barge.
