Today we are having a tuktuk ride around Phnom Penh
this large Independence monument is near the city centre
I can't remember who this statue was
a group of monks passed us
a shop we passed by
statues for sale
views from the tuktuk
on the way back to the boat we stopped to have a look at ...Wat Phnom, or temple on the hill
there were many Buddhas inside
in many different sizes
loved this big gold one
the eldest stupa containing monks ashes I think.
a little Buddhist shrine on the way out
large clock at the bottom of the hill, a city landmark we were told.
Back on the boat we had lunch while travelling up the river to Koh Chen village
we visited a silversmith and copper making shop
had a wander through the village
along the dirt road
looking at the places people live
past the temple
to a school.
We visited this class, they sang Old McDonald had a farm in Cambodian for us as a greeting
then we sang Waltzing Matilda much to their amusement! Little cheek one was down the back off the class!! They asked us a few questions about where we came from, they knew kangaroo from Australia but mixed up goat and sheep when one Kiwi made a sheep sound!!
