Cambodia Adventures – Day 3
You know whenyou go to the gym and… No me either. But you know how you think about going to the gym and you say to yourself, “i would go if only they’d put the exercise bikes in the sauna for maximum fat brurning effect”. Well, now you can do just that by doing a cycle tour in Phnom Penh. Thats what we did yesterday. We joined a group of 3 others including a self centered American woman. Americans hey, can’t travel with them, can’t stop them from travelling.
Cycling throu the city was an experience. Anna nearly died a thousand times. She had some difficulty with the gears and at one point was stuck in the highest gear, peddeling like mad and not going anywhere, just drifting through the onciming traffic. Funny for me at the time, funny for both of us in hindsight.
Immust admit theres a certain amount of trust required to pull out in front of a truck and have faith they will stop.
We got the ferry over Mekong island and cycled around the villages. Said hello to all the children. I mean ALL the children. As you ride past, hello’s fire out of the bushes and houses like sniper bullets of joy. Despite saying hello back to at least a hundred of them you’d feel too mean to not say hello anymore. All fun.
The tour finished with lunch. Then we went back to the hotel for an hour long deep tissue massage. Heaven. The massages ended happily with drinks by the pool.
A sunset cruise capped off an eventful day.
Thought for the day: relaxing by the hotel pool with a book has now been replaced by laying around looking at your mobile device. Ironically, im sitting by the pool as i write this.
