Movie Night in PP

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).
