Maria @mhtolbert stopped by #siemreap on her grand #rpcv journeys to say farewell. I’m so happy that this amazing woman was placed in #svayrieng so that I could get to know her. I’m going to miss you, Maria! #rienger4life

My amazing Ming (aunt) and Bu (uncle) have planned this great and necessary project for our village’s health center, and it has already been fully funded by Whole World Water’s partnership with Water Charity. Check out some of the fantastic work that is happening in Cambodia and other Peace Corps countries through Water Charity on their website!

I’m really proud of Sambath who is making his ambitions into reality with Motor Adventure Mountain Tour. He recently took his first group on his dream tour of off-road Cambodia in Battambang, Pursat, and Koh Kong Provinces. The pictures of this Cardamom Mountain trek are breath taking.

Upside: Starting at Caring for Cambodia on August 8th as the new Deputy Director. Downside: Having to leave everyone at Peace Corps Cambodia on August 5th. Upside: Not only being able to ride but also to own my own motorbike. Downside: There is no Chinese Noodle in Siem Reap; I’m trying to get my dumpling fill while I still can.

The last message from Amanda Arand, one half of the sunniest sunshine committee: “I’ve been a lot of places and I’ve seen a lot of things. It’s the people you meet that really sink in. We have all had our high points and lowest of lows, but the ones we could count on always knew ‘how it goes.’ (And thank Buddha above for some XG love) So before we go I’d like to say it true: I’m honored to have served with you. Thank you and Godspeed!” Happy COS!

I got on a bus today and didn’t text the duty officer. It was weird, but….FREEDOM!
