The Ellie Group is Now in Siem Reap!

Well we certainly had a fun filled day today! We started out the morning by watching the conservation rangers march and chant. They wanted to put on a bit of a show as a thank you for teaching them English.OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Then we got to feed the elephants one last time! We cuddled, played, fed them. Oh, and of course we took a million more photos!OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

After lunch we packed up and headed back to Siem Reap. It was a short 2 hour bus ride to our guesthouse. We all settled in, then took off to explore Siem Reap. The volunteers were taken on a tour of the major attractions of Siem Reap. They went to the palace, and got blessed at one of the temples…OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Then at dinner we met the other third of our Siem Reap group!The other group hung around the pool today, took it easy…and we like to think they anxiously awaited our arrival. We will be joining our groups over the next week as we work in the village.Facebook-20140601-105945

We all had dinner together, then headed to the night market. The volunteers got to shop around a little, and see one of the biggest night market attractions…the ladyboy show. Its a stage performance of great pop hits. Massages are also offered in front of the stage. The volunteers got to sit back, relax, and watch the one of a kind performance. HIghly entertaining!OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAOLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAOLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA
