Cambodian Fact: If you sleep past sun rise you are considered lazy.
Trish & Hubby Fact: We were lazy for most of our trip.
The top thing I wanted to do in Cambodia was the Floating Village (Yeah, it beat out Angkor Wat for me....I know, call me crazy) so after our lazy morning we met our personal tuk-tuk driver for the week, Mr. Tola and headed out to for our first adventure.
Cambodian Fact: The driving in Cambodia is CRAZY. It appears that most people drive on the right side of the road - unless they don't want to, then they don't. I can't tell you how many times it looked like we were going to have a head on collision. There was only 1 traffic light in Siem Reap. Most roads were dirt with the exception of the few going into the main part of town.
Cambodian Fact - In Cambodia they use the US dollar for anything over $1. If the price is under $1 they use Cambodian Riel.
After driving by tuk-tuk for about 45 minutes we arrived safely at our destination.
To travel to Kompong Phluk Village you must take a boat (duhhh). We paid $15 USD per person and traveled on our own personal long boat. Our driver was an 18 year old young man who spoke a little English.
I wish I knew how to get this picture to their Mommas.
The little guy on the edge of the boat yelled at me to take his picture - he was about to do a backflip and wanted to make sure I saw. :o)
After our tour through the village and the mangroves we were ready for a little lunch so we stopped at this little touristy restaurant.
Cambodian Fact: Cambodian's don't do beer well.
Cambodian Fact: Cattle roam free in this country.
