Lighthouse Orphanage

Today I went to the Lighthouse Orphanage which was cool. All the kids are full of spirit and very cheeky. I took them a 10kg bag of rice because they only live off public donation and aren't governmentally funded. They love to play with the visitors, the youngest were the cheeky ones. If you're ever in Phnom Penh get a motorbike out here and deliver food or pens and books - they hardly get by in the rainy season when the visitors stop coming. One of the moto drivers thanked me for going and giving something back, saying the kids benefit so much just from learning English and also surviving off the tourists who want to do some good.

Tomorrow I'm catching the early bus to Siem Reap - a journey that will take most of the day.
