The Kingdom of Cambodia is a country in South East Asia with a population of over 14 million people. The kingdom's capital and largest city is Phnom Penh. Cambodia is the successor state of the once powerful Hindu and Buddhist Khmer Empire, which ruled most of the Indochinese Peninsula between the 11th and 14th centuries.
I have lost track of all the places i have visited so far. i am beginning to grow tired of this trip and am questioning whether or not this trip was worth the money. though i have invested the money to this trip ahead of time so the money is spent and there is nothing i can do about it now. Though i do look forward to get back to the states, back with my friends and family.
I got the idea to go to cambodia from the men in black movie, stating that "you can get a lobster dinner there for like.. a dollar" and i thought screw red lobster lets go to cambodia. I didn't find much lobster there that was worth buying but i did find plenty of snake rolls and fried scorpion. Didn't try any of it, it didnt seem to appetizing to me at all. the language barrier here was ridiculous. almost next to no one spoke a word of english here. i had to pay a translator to come with me for three days during my travels. i probably wouldn't have been able to board my plane without this guy.
though overall my trip was enjoyable. i tasted SOME of the local cuisine and i saw some of the ancient shrines that have been there for hundreds of years. Aside from the language barrier the people were nice from what i could tell. i saw some of the beaches and they were absolutely amazing.
