From Ben in Cambodia

Since arriving in Phnom Penh, our group has stayed in a house on the 30-acre Don Bosco Technical School and gone on homestay from Monday to Wednesday with staff from DBTS. I stayed with Vichika and her family, who quickly became my ‘second-family’. To get to her house I had to ride on the back of a ‘moto’ or motorbike in a country with very little road rules. It became more and more fun after time!
