Siem Reap, Cambodia

Siem Reap, Cambodia | December 2016

After Bangkok, we spent 4 days in Cambodia. It is an easy flight from Bangkok to Siem Reap, Cambodia.

It is hard to fully describe our experience. The country has gone through so much tragedy and loss. And yet the kindness we encountered everywhere was striking.

I need to go back.

We left Bangkok two days ago and arrived in Siem Reap, Cambodia.

We did some exploring in the afternoon but a few hours later I had a spiked fever and ended up vomiting through the night.

The next morning Lauren called for a local doctor to see me and also got in touch with my brother (who is also a doctor) back home. They gave me a bunch of pills and some fluids with electrolytes to get my body going again.

After 24 hours of feeling awful, I woke up at 3am local time feeling much better. My headache is still here and I likely still have a fever. But the intense stomach pain is thankfully gone.

I really hope lauren and the kids won’t catch whatever it is that I am dealing with.
