If you visit… (hint hint)

Hey, fellow friends! Haven’t blogged in a (I might as well say) long time! I was the one (supposed) to keep ya updated, I guess Khmer (and Khmer school) really does take a whole (brain) life-time!

Today, I made a list of things to do with visitors… (if there are any…)

1. Go to Tuol Sleng (Khmer Rouge museum)

2. Killing Fields. (the actual Killing Fields, where the Khmer Rouge took place.)

3. Phsa Toul Tompoung. (Russian market, one of the Khmer markets, three blocks from ‘phteah knyome’ ‘my house’ in Khmer)

4.  H.P.C. (The Hard Places Community, where trafficked kids can have a safe place for the morning and afternoon)

5. Kingdom RESORT. ( I went there for the first time at our ministry organization retreat last weekend. Pool, free breakfast and all green, pink, purple and blue)

6. Go on fun MOTO RIDES!!! (Dad finally got the money for a moto thanks to Uncle Tug)

7. Take walks.

8. Go to REALLY good restaurants. (Daughters’ cafe, L’orchidee, Sumatra, and Sisters.)

9.Go to the mo-at tunle. (riverfront)

10. Maybe a ‘salang jee’ (Boat ride on the Mekong River.)

11. Enjoy your time in Cambodia! (if you want, you can stay at my house or we know a really awesome guesthouse ‘Green Pasture Inn‘)

We have one week off school in October, one week off in November, and two weeks off in December! Just in case you want to come visit us! (Hence, this blog post.) Thank you all for offering your time to come visit us!

At Khmer school, we have quite a few peeps in our class, I like all of them the same, but, Ruth, (a girl in our class) we’ve been to her house, we hang out her with husband, (Ben) and she’s a fun person. Livi wrote a blog post, about raising money for her to go to module three and four (The next two modules) with us, cause they don’t have the money, but these are the modules to learn how to read and write khmer, who wants to miss out on that? Not me, I’ve been waitin’ for this time to come.

And if you don’t want/have the money to support, I’m writing a fiction book, I don’t know if I’ll finish though, it’s not my talent finishing books. And Livi is writing a book too. So, in maybe…  six months, if you don’t like readin’ books, you better start liking them! (;

Question for you: Which of the things I listed would bring you to Cambodia?

From Nina.

    Your family is what would bring me to Cambodia! Would be kinda crazy to meet you all for the first time in Cambodia vs doing it when you were much closer to me, actually in the US!!!
