Phnom Penh Diary

The Royal palace
 Apsara dancers
The Central Market inside a beautiful Art Deco building
 Typical flower arrangements
A late tuk tuk drive
Our hotel
Here's my first post about Cambodia. Finally. I took a while to go through all the photos because you know it was Christmas and New Year's and life happened. Today I'm sitting at my New York's apartment back from Europe and it is snowing and just plain ugly outside so it is perfect to just lounge around and do some work on my notebook.
All of these photos are from our first stop Phnom Penh, the capital of Cambodia. I was surprised by how many expats live in Cambodia and one of the expats we met while there was an American guy who owns a shop with records and posters. If you are like me - always on a hunt for a special souvenir this shop/gallery Space Four Zero is for you. I got one of the posters with Sticky Fingers - a rock band based in here. Seriously who can say they have a poster with a local band from Cambodia!
 Having a drink at the Elephant bar at the Raffles hotel is a must
Konecne se s vami podelim o prvni clanek o Kambodzi. Trvalo mi hodne dlouho se vsemi fotkami prokousat a samozrejme byly Vanoce, Silvestr a tak nejak se udal zivot. Nicmene dnes sedim uz zpet z Evropy na svem gauci v New Yorku a venku snezi a je opravdu nehezky zatazeno, takze vlastne idealni stav na to, abych se povalovala doma s notebookem na kline a udelala alespon nejakou praci. 
Vsechny fotky, ktere s vami dnes sdilim, jsou z nasi prvni zastavky - hlavniho mesta Phnom Penh. Byla jsem dost prekvapena mnozstvim expatu, ktere jsem tam nahodou potkali a jednim z nich byl i American, ktery vlastni opravdu unikatni obchod s deskami a plakaty. Pokud jste alespon trochu jako ja a vzdy hledate netradicni suvenyr, tak tenhle shop/galerie Space Four Zero bude neco pro vas. Odnesla jsem si jeden z plakatu s mistni rockovou kapelou Sticky Fingers. No kdo to ma!
