After two wonderful weeks in Cambodia I am back home in Oak Ridge, TN. I am incredibly lucky to have had this opportunity to represent my City to my new friends and colleagues in Phnom Penh and Siem Reap.
Learning about the Cambodian history, culture, current and future goals is inspirational. So many bright and enthusiastic people of all ages and backgrounds. They have many of the same challenges we do (funding and resources) and same goals to make their home a better place thru clean water, better sanitary practices, education, etc.
All good things must come to an end, as is true with my stay in this wonderful country, But I have made new friends that will last a lifetime and hope to return again one day.
