After months and months of anticipation, my parents arrived in Cambodia! Getting here was no easy task either. On top of the unavoidable challenges that come with traveling for nearly 24 hours, each of the three legs of their flight was also delayed and their luggage was lost! But they eventually arrived safe and sound, ready to spend 10 days with us in the Siem Reap area.
My parents have only been here for a couple of days, but we’ve already gotten to do a lot of things together– many of which Tim and I had never done before. We visited the crocodile farm, toured the silk factory, wandered through the Angkor National Museum, got fish massages, visited the ceramics center, and shopped in many of the tourist markets here in town. On the agenda for tonight is a sunset boat tour, and then tomorrow Tim and I will take them to visit our site.
It’s been wonderful to see my parents after more than a year apart, and I’ve enjoyed the added bonus of getting to do and see so many new things here in Cambodia. More pictures and updates of their trip to come!
