I won't write much about day 1.... I will just post a few pics instead:) basically- what happened was that they all heared I was coming to town and so 1,5million people flocked into the city to welcome me. They lit up the royal place.... And there were fireworks at 8 pm for the next 3 days. They closed off all the main roads for me too!! Really very nice of them!!!! The only way to describe the Scene is like this: sounds like Greek Easter at 12pm and looks like Kings beach in PE on New Year's Day!

Right- clearly this is rubbish... Well- it's all true except for the reason behind it all... The Cambodian King died 3 months ago and this weekend was the day they were going to having the ceremony for his cremation... nd then the actual cremation. It's absolutely huge!!! Most things r shut which is a bit of a potty but actually it has allowed me to experience a completely different city. The most spectacular views!!! Unbelievable....
