Day 3: April 6th, 2010 – Orientation Day

Orientation day. Learned a lot about Cambodian history, especially the recent political struggle. Volunteer Action for Cambodia had a presentation for us and answered a lot of questions dealing with the situation in Cambodia, both past and present. Went on tour through city, saw a lot of the same stuff from yesterday. Found some cool drums and managed to bargain down to a good price, then I realized I forgot my wallet at the guesthouse and didn’t have access to any cash. Fuck. Guess I’ll go back. Spent all of my money on Khmer CDs and an awesome house coat with a dragon on it. It’s even double sided. Booya muthafucka.

Drunk from dinner with organization folks. Met some cute girls. Met some Cambodian men who said they’d take me out after Khmer New Year’s to meet Cambodian women.

Didn’t get much information about what I have for supplies for my placement, etc. I may or may not be teaching tomorrow morning at 10 am. No one seems to know the answer. Going to bed.
