Royal Palace and back to Siem Reap

We visited The Royal Palace in Phnom Penh, it had an enormous courtyard, dancing hall, a building donated by Napolean III, a Buddhist temple with silver and gold form the floor to the ceiling, and The Silver Pagoda. "It's good to be the king."

We made our way back up to Siem Reap via bus and after the long ride we stopped by one of our schools. With the money we had fundraised we decided to have some of the rooms painted, a volleyball net built, and some water filters set up around the school (to make the well water potable). It was nice to the see the upgrades and the students after not seeing them for a few days.
