The first day in Cambodia was by no means an easy one. With high humidities and heat no one was prepared for the intensity of the situation. It was a mental strain just as much as it was a physical one. Seeing such poverty was very difficult to see. A boy with one arm. So precious but horrible to see. Just walking through the streets my mind became aware of an entire different part of the world that  I had no care about before. The interview Max and I did with the traditional Cambodian dance instructor was one of the most powerful experiences I have ever gone through. “My soul is already dead” she claimed. What an amazing woman. Tough but great first day.
