Phnom Penh

good afternoon!
last day i drove with the bus to phnom penh.
two times i got to a really different places with a motorbike.
so they cannot write and read anything and can not speak english. they always broughtme to another place what they thought that's interesting.
also with showing a map they cannt read this.....
not so easy with them.
yesterday night i visited some bars (walkabout and sharky)
some people are really poor. when i sat down on the street to eat my mandarine a 22 years old girl who is looking for some alloy cans and pet bottles to me and we ate mandarines together, she seemed to be very hungry. she also tried to follow me to my hotel for staying with me. so i decided to go with a motorbike somewhere else. many people are begging. cambodia is one of the poorest country i've ever seen.
this day is sunday and i visited the royal palace and the national museumm
