A Warm Welcome Back

It’s good to be back home in Cambodia.

I returned to my favourite cafe in town and I was greeted with a standing ovation by all the staff.

It’s moments like these that make all of this worth it. Sometimes, it’s not the impact that you make and things that you achieve here, but rather the smaller things that you tend to cherish.

This little guy didn’t know how to respond when he saw my face. Watching the kids try to process the face of a foreigner is quite comical. They go through a phase of shock and distress. Once they overcome their initial fear, they become entranced with curiosity.

Apparently, I’ve put on a lot of weight after going back to Australia. The Cambodians aren’t shy about letting you know.
