We drove to the outskirts of Phnom Penh–because cycling out of their would have been… difficult…life threatening really. We got on our bikes and cycled 50km to the border.
We said goodbye to our bikes and our Cambodian guides. Then we walked across the border. I have a fantastic picture, but I am having difficulty uploading it. The experience was not difficult but it was an incredibly hot day.
We met our Vietnamese guides and picked up some new bikes… which were the same ones I road in February.
We then rode 30km inside Vietnam to neour hotel doorstep. The scenery changed quite a bit once we crossed the border. Additionally, I have never said hello as much as I had that day. So many children jumped out to say “hello” to us as we cycled past.
My hotel was pretty good. I was so exhausted from the heat and cycling that I crashed after my clay pot chicken dinner.
Check out the cute soap from my hotel.
