Yesterday Rachel, Phoebe, Jamie and Aunty Kath went on a Khumer cooking course. We decided to do the half day so we learnt to cook 2 dishes. The first one was a started called bannana flower sausages. This involved beating the spices in a morter which Phoebe and jamie enjoyed and then more bashing to make the meat into a kind of mince. It tasted gorgeous.

The next dish was Fish Amok which is the traditional dish of Cambodia. We had to make little banana leave bowls to steam our food in. when it was cooked we ate it on a covered terrace by the very peaceful Mekong River. *Delightful*

The rest of the day was taken up with packing…Colin took the children to Pencil which is a local play area. After about an hour and a half I had a phonecall to say Ewan had cut his head (last week Jamie had cut his head on the bedside table) But thanks to Liz Teo I had learnt the trick of instant stitching using their hair.. and of course in case anyone is worried lots of antiseptic cleansing! So both boys have had their heads patched. Im sure there is an A&E but there are some you just dont go to … makes me grateful for my GP and Frimley A&E.

Tomorrow we are up early and off to the beach to see another part of Cambodia and to have a bit of a rest after such a busy two weeks.
