Alone in Phnom Penh
Well, the adventure began with a bang. I arrived in Phnom Penh (without Cris this time) and had a very productive and encouraging meeting with the folks at Daughters of Cambodia. I will be returning to pick up samples of the packaging this afternoon. Their ideas were amazing, things we never thought of, like using only naturally dyed fabric, right down to the drawstring. I can't wait to see what they come up with.
I've booked the bus trip to Kep and leave first thing in the morning. Meet with the pepper folks there (in nearby Kampot, actually) and get all the product details ironed out...shipping...availability...etc.
Off to have fish and chips for lunch...and maybe a Beer Lao.
