It was a big day for three of our boys as they made the journey into Phnom Penh by Tuk-tuk for the first time. They were the actors in the video Child’s Play by Andy Grey and the video was being shown at the Meta House in the evening. Andy and his family invited us to their home for the occasion and provided for all of our needs. It was the first time being in the city for Nith, Lak, and Doar and they had a great time. Long Dy has made the journey several times for Yoga class. Little things fascinated them, like sleeping in a house with three floors, hot showers, a real bed to sleep on that they didn’t have to share with someone, and a fan to keep them cool all night. I enjoyed very much watching them take it all in.
Before the show we were treated to a very nice meal at a popular restaurant with a great menu but of course they were only interested in rice. Fortunately Andy ordered some side dishes and we had more then enough to eat. The video was well received and the boys were acknowledged for the work they had put into making it.
The following morning we walked around town for awhile and they saw for themselves the newest high rise on the Phnom Penh’s skyline. It was definitely an eye-opening time for them but they were also very happy when I asked them if they were ready to go back to Wat Opot.
