Day 7 - Prahos Kbal to Pursat

Saturday, July 13, 2013


Today we were going to be putting in a full day before going to Pursat to a clean bed and running water with a flush toilet. How much we take these everyday comforts for granted.

After breakfast our work day began in earnest. There was more of a lightness in the air as we all knew that a hot shower was waiting for us before the day was over.

We continued mixing cement and then lugging buckets of cement to the front of the school to finish the walkway. This was a much heavier job as the heavy rainfall of yesterday made all the piles of sand wet and heavy. Mixing the sand, cement and water was tougher. Vivian was our champion as she did a lot of the heavy landscaping like jobs. She has the strength and fortitude of an Amazon woman.

At the back of the foundation slab which is located between the elementary school and the secondary school we lugged baskets of soil over to the five flower beds in the front of the school.

The secondary school is where we are sleeping and the total cost of it was donated by one woman from Canada. Around $35,000.00. Not bad for an entire school which has about 5 large rooms.

We then planted flowers in the flower beds. More like weeds with flowers. Also some impatiens.

We left for Pursat sometime in the late afternoon. It was a 1 hour and 20 minute ride that we were all looking forward to.

As soon as we go to the hotel we were greeted by Leah. (Check not sure) Had an amazing wonderful shower. No one wanted to leave the shower, it was so very good.

Dinner at the hotel. Spring rolls, fish and ginger and rice. Leah ordered the spring rolls in advance as the restaurant went to buy the supplies as it is not a regular item on their menu. We first commented that we couldn't possibly eat them all and in the end we couldn't get enough of them. They were so very good.

After dinner, it was more blogging, talking and off to bed and a wonderful sleep.
