Mira Costa School - New Day, New Places

Monday was a day of travel to Siem Reap, but what we did get to experience the Russian markets. We visited two, one that was in Phnom Penh and the other in Siem Reap. As we walked through the Phonm Penh Russian market I experienced a wide variety of smells form all the different types of food. There was so many little shops trying to sell you many knickknacks and trinkets. Yet all were unique and each had there own specialty items. But each was try to argue with you for a better price and get you the better deal. In contrast the one in Siem Reap was almost exactly the same except for prices were higher. This is because Siem Reap is a very large tourist destination in which they can charger more. It was very interesting to see how Siem Reap was more developed and tourist oriented them Phonm Pen even though it is much smaller. But the place we are staying at is a retreat center and caters to all religions and is very beautiful even though it is very simple.
