Here are a few pictures that we took on our commute out to Svay Pak--a drive that takes about 45 minutes to an hour and is around 20 kilometers/12 miles.
|First we must drive across the city of Phnom Penh...|
|...passing local trash dumps...|
|...the Independence Monument...|
|and wedding tents that take up half the road.|
|As we leave the city, the poverty becomes more noticeable.|
|The marginalized Muslim communities live on the outskirts of the city.|
|Then we arrive in Svay Pak.|
|This building houses a medical clinic, a church auditorium, nine classrooms, two offices, two supply closets, two households, a kitchen and a computer lab -- all in five floors!|
|The view of the community from the back of the school/church.|
|Becki having a meeting with the teachers.|
|And just for fun--never underestimate what can be carried on the back of a moto!|
