We started with a trip to a remote fishing village. From there we went trekking for 2 days in the jungles of the Cardamom Mountains.
We returned to Phnom Penh to meet Dan's family. On Christmas day we all took a Cambodian cooking class together where we learned to make a local specialty-fish amok. It is very similar to yellow fish curry.
Then we headed to Siem Reap to visit the temples of Angkor Wat.
