Traveling Sorry Monsoon Wednesday 16 July 2008
Today the Monsoon finally lived up to its reputation and gave us an hour of torrential rain in the afternoon continued by a lot more dripping. We had been taking a slow day anyway, only visiting the genocide museum Tol Slueng in the morning. We waited out the rain on the balcony and then went to see the Wat Phnom temple to which Phnom Penh owes its name. It was lovely.

Afterwards we strolled around the town and stumbled upon a huge mall where I splurged on a huge ice cream - a slow day as I said. Phnom Penh is great btw, wide boulevards and big squares everywhere, and lots of buildings with roofs in the lovely Cambodian temple style.
