One of those was a quote by Todd when we were wandering around Wat Phnom, the main temple in the center of the city. "It feels like we are covered in a blanket of wetness." Did I mention it is very hot and humid in SE Asia?
This specific blog is going to focus on the one thing I felt shocked by in Cambodia: The traffic.
It was terrifying and awesome at the same time! And, yet, somehow, I never actually saw a car accident. My friend Ben had told me before that crossing the street would be intense. He mentioned that you just have to walk into traffic at a continuous speed and people would walk around you. I learned that that was true.
People drove cars, vans, tuk-tuks, mopeds and motos all over the place and all at the same time with no rhyme or reason. It was quite the spectacle to see!
To the left and below is Todd and Jen's street in Cambodia.
This is the traffic on the way to the Killing Fields. The drive wasn't that bad but you can see the mixture of vehicles.
