Today we got up, had our final breakfast at the hotel and packed our bags. Some of the local pastors and their families came and said goodbye and prayed for us. It was sad to leave after hearing their stories and getting to know them so well, but we were excited for the future of their ministries!
Two and half hours later in the mini van, we arrived in Siem Reap. We soon discovered that our van driver wasn't exactly familiar with the location of our restaraunt for lunch. After multiple wrong turns and pulling over and asking for directions from many kind passerbys we still couldn't find the place. Eventually, we managed to drive past the restaurant and a few of us spotted it and told the driver, but he still insisted it was further along the river! Eventually we got to the right place, it was called Sala Bai. It is a restaurant which trains underprivileged young Cambodians in hospitality to increase education levels and fight poverty and human trafficking.
After a tasty lunch we jumped back into the van and wondered how our driver would go at getting us to the hotel. After many more wrong turns, getting lost again and then dropping us at the wrong hotel, he finally pulled over and asked a Tuk Tuk driver to show us the way!
In the evening we headed to the streets of Siem Reap which were bubbling with many tourists and spent a lot of time searching through the markets looking at heaps of cool trinkets and souvenirs. We had dinner with live music across the street from us and then headed back to the hotel to rest.
