This weekend was a great time for everyone to recover and relax on the tourist side of the island. Several of us realized we were almost having reverse culture shock! Compared to our quiet nights of cards and fires and watching the stars as they poked out between the coconut trees, the tourists were unbelievably loud and out of control!
We managed to stuff our faces full of the luxuries of western culture, like milk, bread, burgers and even some Nutella and Vegemite while we caught some sun on the beach.
After we arrived back on the other side of the island we had a few people go out for some short evening dives, while others simply enjoyed the quiet village life and laughter of the locals as the power came on (and later went back out!)
Today we have started working hard again at full throttle! We are bound and determined to finish the water reservoir before we head back to Phnom Penh on Friday, as well as also getting the coral reef pods ready. Rianna even spent some time teaching the children how to brush their teeth! Let’s hope they keep up the hard work!
As the sun set we all went out to coconut bay and had some coconuts as we played and bathed!
Until next time!
