Let me start to blog with saying this, I can't believe its December and tomorrow I leave to go to Cambodia.  I never would have thought that I would travel to Cambodia.  I feel so lucky to have this chance.   Its funny traveling over here.  Its not always as simple as getting on a plane and finding a hotel.  First, you have double check  the visa requirements.  Some places have interesting requirements.  For instance, Burma requires 3 years of bank statements.  Cambodia just wanted a picture and twenty dollars.  I can do that.  My visa was really cool because it said the Kingdom of Cambodia.   In a one week span, I have been to a ball and now will be traveling to a kingdom.  How cool is that? 

Another thing, I needed to investigate was malaria.  It turns this area has a small amount.  The recommendation is not worry about it.  You just need to wear long sleeves and pants.  Umm, I am not going to run in long sleeves and pants.  So, I am taking the pills.  Fun, fun!  No weird reactions, which is good.  Just interesting that a place I am traveling has malaria. 

This week, I have actually had a social life.  Last night, I went out for surprise birthday celebration and Thursday night is ladies night! :)  I will be taking it easy friday night.  I fly into Kuala Lumpur.  I imagine that room service and a good nights rest will be all I want.  But, who knows?  My flight the next morning is at 7:00 am and I land at 8:00 am.  I imagine there is a time change that I don't know about.  The first thing on my agenda is to pick up the race packet.  Then I will head to Angkor Wat to explore the temples.  These temples are supposed to be amazing.  But, you need to stay on the path because the site still possesses mines.  Isn't that strange?   The marathon that I will be running has a special category for amputees.  Doesn't that break your heart? 

Saturday night, there is a carbo loading dinner.  I will be running the 1/2 marathon early Sunday morning.  My three day weekend should be just long enough to take in the sights of Siem Reap with Angkor Wat and eat at the red piano.  This restaurant was featured in Tomb Raider.  I hear that they have a drink called the Angelina Jolie.    It should be a good trip.  It looks like I will be traveling solo, which is fine.  Mom and dad, I will text you the whole time!

Happy Weekend!
