This is a bit of an inbertween post, I have a big piece coming next week about The Killing Fields, what I learnt there and how I grew more in a day than I ever remember, and I also have a post about a cafe in Phnom pehn I visited but I didn't want to put them together with this post because they're very different posts so this is all the other things I did in Phnom Pehn.
So there aren't a ridiculous amount of pictures for this, but there is a longer video with all I got up to in Phnom Pehn so be sure to check that out (it's at the bottom of this post).
Now as a vegan eating bugs is something that I am not really behind and only one guy on our tour actually had a spider, it was gross. But they did have lots of other food in the market we visited and we had these giant nectarine type things and i bought vegetable crisps, it was good.
Then the next day we went to visit The Killing Fields and S21 and I learnt a lot of Cambodian history that I didn't really know much about before. And met two of the most inspiring people I ever have. Like I said I'll talk more about that in my next post.
After a fairly heavy and emotional morning we headed off for lunch, a place I will write about in two posts time, which was really good. It was quite upmarket western style food which was a nice little change. And then a few of us headed off to do some vintage shopping. The first place we went I bought a pair of trousers and a really nice skirt and thought that was my luck done for the day until the woman who owned the shop told us how to get to these Japanese recycling shop.
So basically these shops are full of donated clothes from Japan, a lot that are designer (though some it's debatable whether they are) and i was in heaven, these clothes were so cheap, they had a $0.50 bin and I just didn't know what to buy. Ended up with two full bags of pretty great quality second hand clothing for $7.50. With only one problem... I had no idea how I was going to fit all of this in my backpack and still had a month of my trip left. But I was gunna think about that later.
So that's it for my short story telling post of Phnom Pehn, I hope you liked it and will check out my video for more of a visual on it all. Thanks for reading and I will see you guys on Tuesday!
