This morning we woke up early to embark on oxcarts! Each oxcart could host two people and we went for a ride in the countryside to see rice fields and lotus ponds. We learned a lot about rice production. We enjoyed the beautiful scenery, and it was great fun that everyone will remember!

After this experience we went to visit the Green School where we listened to the kids singing and they practiced their English with us. It was really rewarding.

Back on board the ship, the staff showed us the Cambodian traditional fashion for weddings and the many ways to use and tie a krama, the traditional piece of check fabric they all carry around. While cruising near Phnom Penh, we were amazed to see the separation between the Mekong and the Tonle Sap waters.

Finally, in the afternoon we went to visit a silk workshop where we also tasted new varieties of fruit. Then we visited a stunning Cambodian wooden house made by a great Cambodian architect.
