|PIC and I chilled out and watched the fireworks over the Independence Monument from our roof.|
In 1953, under the reign of the late King Norodom Sihanouk, Cambodia declared independence from France. Cambodia's horrific and tragic past is well known, and I wish more people knew about all of the good and beautiful things that happen here everyday, and about Cambodia's optimistic future.
I feel so lucky to live in this country. Every day I see things that make me think about the way I approach my life, I get to talk to people who have a completely different past from my own, and I get to learn more about the intricacies of the culture of Cambodia. My friends and family in Canada keep asking me when I'm planning on moving 'home', and I just have to tell them that I'm so in love with where I'm living!
It's true: Cambodia, I love you.
