The sun is setting. And all across Cambodia, at innumerable parks and riverside promenades, people are dancing …
Exercise and fitness are an important part of the new Cambodia’s mindset. “Exercise and you will be healthy and live a long life,” is the mantra I have been told over and again.
And the Cambodians do not only dance. They walk. They run. They play soccer and badminton, as well as other games. There is always music in the park. It is fun. It is festive.
Sunrises also find people exercising. My first morning in Phenom Penh found me dancing at Olympic Stadium, joining a group of dancers welcoming in the new morning.
Personally, I was welcoming in my first dawn in Cambodia.
