Day 2: Welcome to the amazing Cambodian Village.

Hello (Sua Sdei) Monday! You woke us up so early in this morning. After we had Omelet with Bread for our breakfast at the hotel, we took two Tuk Tuks to the village where we are going to work today. On the way to the village we saw a big different between Cambodia and Canada like landscape, lives style and especially a lot skinny cows along the way to the village.

We are ready for work!

Now we arrived the community which we always dream about when we are in Cambodia. We met a lot of friendly children, local volunteers, staffs and Sambath the school director at the village.

In here one of local guy (Sam) wanted us to introduce our background and what are we going to be in the future. They also introduce themselves to us.

After that Sambath introduced himself and his community, it is such a great thing to know about his background and his school. Event it waspretty hot and all of us get sweaty.

We had the village orientation by him and his volunteers around the village. On the way to the village we have learned too much different things if we compare to Canada or the other countries in Europe.

We took a rest at the local coffee shop and while we were there we had a delicious Jack Fruit there. It is very sticky fruit like the glue, but it is tasty.
