I hate flying
I arrived in Phnom Penh, Cambodia on the 13 around 11:00pm. I flew Chicago-Seattle-Korea-Phnom Penh. I was suppose to have about two hours inbetween each flight, how ever it was actually about five minutes! I had motion sickness for the majority of the flights, I really hope I can find some drammine before I fly to Thailand. The hotel we are staying at is very nice and we all have our own balconies which is cool. Across the street is a sala, or school and a carpenter shop. I am happy I have been studing Khmer for the past two years. My Khmer is limited, but I was able to order breakfast and dinner for myself and my roommate, negotaite a tuk tuk and talk prices down for some sunglasses (supposibly they are Ray-Bans I bought for $5). The food is very yummy. At the hotel we have Khmer noodle soup for breakfast and I had wontons with spicy chicken for dinner. Today things will finally get rolling with lunch, orientation and a trip to the market to exchange money. One nice thing about Cambodia is that the green back is accepeted just as often as the local money (riel). Sorry no interesting pictures or videos yet. I just wanted to post and let everyone know I arrived safely. Sorry if there are mispelled words, my abc check button is not working. Also, sorry there is no pictures yet, the internet is pretty picky and I had a little trouble uploading the video I took.
