Today I woke from the cabin and we got the wheels running around 6:00 am. I have been eating chicken for breakfast....which I have been loving. Great way start the day with a chicken red curry. At our lunch spot, the vendor became fresh out of chicken due to my greedy behavior....I need to feed the legs! As soon as you step outside the sweat is coming. Drinking about 5 liters per day to keep the body moving. We have been cycling through the country side and it has been very peaceful. We haven't been meeting tons of children through this stretch of our trip, but we still made a few stops when the opportunity was given.
I saw many kids today playing on a field and I guess they had a PE class where they could enjoy some time outside. At this point Jeans was interval training and was way ahead....I couldn't get her attention so I made a solo pit-stop. The kids were great and we threw the disc around, kicked the soccer ball, danced a little and attempted to communicate with one another. I donated two soccer balls, two basketballs and a frisbee to their school. Their teacher was present and was very thankful for the donation.
We made our way to the Thai-Cambodian border and how things have changed....Once we crossed the border into Poipet we cycled into a frenzy of chaos. It was interesting to see the people and their daily routines. We saw many people hauling a trailer filled with supplies, crossing the border to do business on the other side.
We need to count our blessings and be thankful for the life we have been given. We heard there are many homeless children in this area and we are hoping to be able to give out some goods before we leave to Siem Reap. Our charity ride is up and running and we are looking forward to meeting many kids across our tour of Cambodia....Wish us luck.
