March 6 by Yonni and Camila

Waking up to screeching pigs for the last time, our group said our goodbyes to our lovely host families from the village of Koh’Pdao and set off on an hour-long boat ride back to the mainland. Students boarded our coach and drove over many tall wooden bridges to Kampong Cham, where we will continue visiting local social enterprises. We stopped to stretch our legs and eat lunch where we were able to see the heavenly icon of wi-fi on our phones for the first time in five days. We then tuk-tuk’ed to our hotel where we were able to take two-handed showers with amazing water pressure (after getting used to the island bucket showers) and walked to a local Cambodian restaurant, Mekong, ironically along the Mekong River for limited pizza slices and delicious Cambodian cuisines with mango shakes. We then headed back to the hotel to rest up and prepare for the Buddhist temples and enterprises to come tomorrow.
