Movie night in Phnom Penh consisted of a Tuk-tuk ride after yoga (where I got stretched all over the place), 3 dollar garlic chicken from Mad Monkey Hostel and a free showing of “Dont Think You are Forgotten – The Fascinating Tale of Cambodia’s Vibrant 1960’s Music Scene” at the Meta House, a German-Cambodian Cultural Center, with my new friend Cynthia.
Super interesting brain food!
The things that stood out to me were:
- How developed Phnom Penh was in the 60’s/70’s
- How groovy their outfits were and that C-bodians got SOUL
- How much of the culture was destroyed by the Khmer Rouge
- How re-invigorated I am to learn and grow as much as possible this year
- And the last lesson and adventure of the night was that I don’t mind being on a moto sandwich (in other words – 3 people can easily fit on a moto).
“I think music in itself is healing. It’s an explosive expression of humanity. It’s something we are all touched by. No matter what culture we are from, everyone loves music.” -Billy Joel
