Today we hoped to catch a 9:30 bus to Phnom Penh since Mike told me there was no way in he could get up early enough for the 7:30 bus. According the bus company’s website, such a bus existed, however I went to the bus stop and discovered their website was wrong so we were stuck with the 12:30 bus. At the time I was a little upset cause I thought we had lost a day in Phnom Penh but decided I should do something interesting before we left Kampot. I had seen blind massages advertised all over the city so I decided to get one since it was only 4 bucks. Despite what I had heard, it was not anything special and if anything only made the injury to my calf hurt worse. By the time it ended Mike and I had time to quickly grab lunch, then it was off to Phnom Penh.
In Phnom Penh, april showers don’t bring May Flowers instead May Showers bring May floods. The streets into Phnom Penh were somewhat flooded so it was interesting seeing people wading through the water outside the bus window. We finally arrived at our destination the Phnom Penh Grand Market and were soon Tuk-tuking to our hostel The Mad Monkey.
If you are ever in Phnom Penh, stay at the Mad Monkey or at least stop by for food as it is out of this world. In reading reviews I heard a lot of positives but was not sure just how good it would be. Mike and I ordered a variety of food and I think we both agreed it was the best we had so far, especially the desserts. We decided to not doing anything after dinner and instead just had a relaxing night in the hostel.
