We struggled to get out of bed but forced ourselves. Jacs not well & the heat outside was pretty intense. We withdrew money from the ATM which spat out US dollars. As we would come to learn, everything over here is in dollars. We headed to the riverfront for a nice breakfast, although we were constantly approached by beggars & sellers trying to offload their goods. It was mid morning & Jac wasn't up to walking around so we decided to hire a Tuk Tuk for a few hours. Most of the places we have been have different kinds of tuks but these would have to be our favourite. They are just standard bikes with a carriage attached that has big cushy seats & you bounce along behind the bike pretty comfortably. Our first stop was Wat Phnom, a stupa built where Phnom Penh was founded. Nothing too exciting so we only stayed for 20 mins. From there it was a trip up to the Royal Palace. We had to buy a cheap T-shirt off the street for Jac, but we really shouldn't have bothered. There just wasn't anything there to interest us. We did fill in an hour before finding our driver & got him to drop us at an Aussie bar. Jac still wasn't feeling great so we found some chairs & settled in to watch my Hawks play Jacs bombers in the afl. 60 points Jacquie. Just saying!! We then caught another Tuk back to the river & had a Mexican feed. Whilst there we got chatting to a couple of well educated young Cambodian guys about what was happening in the city. There are national elections on the weekend & as a result thousands of people, mostly young, are riding & walking whilst chanting & waving their flags. Concerts are happening everywhere & trucks with loudspeakers are cruising the streets. The same party has been in power for 30 years but people want change & this is being driven by the young. The feeling around the city is amazing, you can feel the power of the people. We hope it happens for them, but with the corrupt government it really isn't going to happen. Well not yet anyway. But from little things, big things grow so it mightn't happen now, but the seed has been planted. We wished the guys good luck & headed back to our hotel through the crowd. Who knows, maybe we are involved in a small piece of history for this country.
