Phnom Penh

Arrived in Phnom Penh yesterday. It is quite a city! Beautiful river-front walkway, tons of restaurants and places to stay, great people. We walked along the water last night and there were big groups of people out doing aerobics and dancing/exercising. Each group had it's own personality - a bunch of older ladies with oldies music, some people with "traditional" sounding Cambodian music doing slow "martial arts" looking moves, some kids with some very well-organized hip hop moves - it was like the place was filled with competing flash mobs. I loved it!

Today we are headed to the Tuol Sleng Prison museum. It won't be cheerful, but I definitely want to see it. I still can't believe something so horrific happened to this country so recently and they have rebounded in every way to become this wonderful place.

I'm sitting by the registration desk of the SeaCrest Motel in Pismo, thinking of you! I had lunch at Fin's and thought of Shawn driving out onto the beach so many times. I'm sure all that seems so far away and so long ago to you. Erin brought the boys and we had an interesting evening last night. Whew! Today they played at that cute little park with the big Orca whale and the blue dinosaur eggs. (I'll send some pics!) I think I'll get some saltwater taffy to take home tomorrow. It will be so strange without you this Christmas. Can hardly wait to give you all hugs when you return! Much love! xoxoxo
