After months of dreaming about it, I’m finally here–Phnom Penh, Cambodia. I just had dinner with Cristian a few hours ago after we rode around town in the bed of a pick-up truck. Piggy-backing on Cristian’s earlier post, we got a new perspective (and perhaps a deeper appreciation) of the crazy driving skills required to navigate through the streets of Phnom Penh–it’s not quite the same when you’re in the middle of the action as opposed to standing on the sidewalk.
Fortunately for us, a family friend had graciously offered to pick us up and give us a tour of the city. Phnom Penh is definitely full of surprises and timeless splendor.
Well in less than twelve hours, Cristian and I will be visiting the Sihanouk Hospital Center of HOPE for Day 1 of our project. We don’t have much time to lose and there is plenty of work ahead of us. I know the hospital has done, and continues to do, some amazing work in the country and I am truly humbled and thrilled to serve in such a small way.
Stay tuned, pictures are one their way….
