Trip Overview

We have sampled the local cuisine, including noodle soups for breakfast, fresh crab in Kep, and chicken bones in garlic and red pepper—delicious! Today we kayaked to a mountain waterfall, climbed to its top, and jumped in. After our swim, we picnicked on smoked salmon and fresh mangos overlooking the cascade, feeling like we were dreaming, pinching ourselves to realize we really were in Cambodia.
