Around Phnom Penh
I'm going to try and lighten things up a little. Phnom Penh is a lovely city and while it may be a bit expensive (by SE Asia standards) it does have a lot of great places to eat and plenty to see. We didn't go to the Royal Palace but we did walk by it a lot and the riverside. After spending our day at the Killing Fields and Tuol Sleng we decided to try a restaurant that helps street kids with education and job training. It was called Friends and is located near the National Museum. We paid North American prices but since it was going to a good cause (the school they have funded is next door to the restaurant even) we decided to splurge. Oh, and the food was incredible. I think it may have been the best meal I've had on this trip. If you have a little bit of money to spend I would really recommend trying this place.
