no cycling, at least it is not worth to mention as it was.
As I already cycled over 2000 km and I don’t have a chain tool on me, I decided to change my chain as it’s sometimes recommended after that many kilometers on not the nicest roads. Therefore I went to the bicycle shop of the brand Specialize. I already had a new chain on me, I bought it in Kathmandu. They replaced it for free😀 It was 2 km away.
Next task on the list was organizing a ticket to get down to the beach. My idea was to get the train. The alternative was the bus, but I wanted to take the train. Sadly I forgot one problem. No it was not the bicycle, the train was already full for tomorrow… So I had to get a bus ticket…
After all the non touristic tasks I got to my touristic part of today: visiting Tuol Sleng Museum. It was the prison where people were tortured during the time of the Khmer Rouge, before they were send to the killing fields (which I visited yesterday) to be executed. Again really great to visit this sad place. I got an audio guide and listened to everything there was to learn everything about the time of the Khmer Rouge.
For lunch I went to the russian marked again to get noodles as it was close by the museum.
After the museum it was 15 o’clock. I was told that my passport with the Vietnamese visa would be ready at 16 o’clock, but I went there anyway, as I had nothing to do anymore. My passport was ready with the approved visa😀
On the way to the Vietnamese embassy I saw this kids paradise 😍 I checked it out, the whole tower was full of activities for kids like climbing, laser tag, bumper cars,… Sadly the maximum age was 12 years… (Yeah that is my finder in the lens…)
I was lazy and took a tuk tuk back to the hostel
As I was so interested in the story of the Khmer Rouge, I watched a documentary over this topic as the audio guides only explained what happened at the places I was at but not how it really started and ended.
For the rest of the evening i was just chilling in the roof top bar and packing/preparing my stuff for tomorrow as I leave in the morning at 8:30 for the bus.
So that’s also what I will be doing tomorrow, taking the bus to get down to the beach, where I will get a ferry to get to an island where I met up again with Soraya and Andreas😀
Somewhere in the city I saw this commercial, where I thought: “Photoshop makes every commercial better”
