Phenom Penh, Day 15: Saying goodbye ,,, leaving the city

So OK… here it is.

Today, I leave the comfort of the hotel, with all of its wonderful support staff and a great owner, say goodbyes,
take the “cultural training wheels” off… and head out of the city.

I am on “my own” now.

[Well, I guess I have always be ‘on my own’, but with the amount of support, friends, and introductions, the transition period has been so smooth for the past 2+ weeks in the city. So, was ‘on my own’ … but not really.]

NOW … now … I am really going on my own: Off to rural Cambodia!!

A French restaurant with great steaks.

I shall miss some of the more exotic offerings the city has to offer.

Be sure to order a mango daiquiri as well …

(Dining tip: Skip the abdomins. They like to eat odd things … and tasting their dinner from the night before … even if fried … uuhhh … just stick with the heads, legs, etc … dip a crunchy leg in the dipping sauce and enjoy. Follow up with a sip of that mango daiquiri. It’s actually really good.)

One of many fun nights

… and the many silly nights.
