Wednesday

Well, there's nothing like being taught by children to give one a lesson in humility.  Today, as I practised my Khmer alphabet, and was repeatedly corrected, I felt somewhat stupid!  But, I guess, small steps are how it has to begin.

We tried a new fruit today.  Not sure of its English name, but it looked very much like the baby potatoes that we used to eat on Sundays!  (Sundays being the day you HAVE to eat potatoes at home!!)  Anyhow, you peel the skin and it's a little bit like grapefruit segments inside, but sweeter.  We always enjoy sampling new delicacies, but we're trying to ease our tummies in gently.  We've learnt from our mistakes!
