New York City: I don't have my driver's license...or permit. I know, what a child. Living right by public transportation that takes me only 15 minutes to get into Manhattan makes it quite simple for me to go anywhere. Due to its old age, New York City public transportation fails on me from time to time. I've been late to class countless times because of "train traffic" or poor weather conditions. Walking is always an option, and let's just say - despite traffic lights existing, no one abides by them. We walk when we feel like it. Pedestrians think that but so do drivers. Thing is, you're never alone - there's probably a good group crossing the street with you as the light is red and a car is coming less than twenty feet away. Walking the dog, while smoking a cigarette with one hand, holding a cup of coffee with the other as they text on their smartphone. Multitasking is an understatement...so is calling New Yorkers a walking hazard.
Cambodia: I am so excited to know that the possibility of me being able to drive a moto...also known as...A MOTORCYCLE. There are certain guidelines I have to meet before that can happen but it's still super exciting to know that it CAN happen. It's cooler than learning to drive a car! People in Cambodia also travel using a Tuk-Tuk, also known as a taxi. Tuk-Tuks are basically motos that have a carriage hooked up to it in the back for people to sit on. What I also found interesting is that the brand of their cars are largely labeled on the side. I'll include a photograph to more clearly explain.
Cambodia: Many of the dishes we had were extremely similar to the ones you can find in a Chinese Restaurant but for some reason...tasted a million times better! (A) For breakfast, we had roasted pork on rice. It's just like the Chinese version except a lot less oily & fatty. (B) They make their coffee with condensed milk. I love condensed milk & coffee. I was told that Cambodia is famous for their coffee, more than their tea. (C) Rice noodles. I had that for breakfast one day. Good stuff. (D) I believe this is sweet and sour chicken/pork? (E) We called it colored water. It's really just watered down tea. That's what was given to us to drink whenever we went to eat. -- We also went out for Indian food and pizza. Both are delicious in Cambodia! Fruit is amazing there, I had so much Dragon Fruit!
Cambodia: THE NICEST PEOPLE I HAVE EVER MET. That's all I can really say. There's nap-time everyday after lunch, it's great. You can also hear the birds in the morning! Geckos are everywhere and harmless, you'll take showers with them...but then they disappear once you're finished!
