I made it

Yesterday morning (Cambodia time) I landed in Phnom Penh, and will be here until I finish work on August 1st, then I will travel a bit until a return home on August 8th.  I figure a blog is the best way to update all of my friends and family in a mass way.  But to be quite honest, I have wifi where I am staying, which is also where I am working, so I can ichat (text with iphone users), facetime, Facebook, Instagram and all that stuff on a daily basis as if I were still home so feel free to contact me.  Just don't text me if you don't have an iphone or call me, that stuff is extremely expensive, plus my phone is on airplane mode so you wouldn't get through.  Also keep in mind I am 14 hours ahead of California.

Nothing majorly exciting has happened in the last 24 hours, I've just been settling in, running a couple errands, and attempting to get on their time zone but failing.  Today Anna, my classmate from law school who is also interning at Equitable Cambodia with me, is arriving which I'm excited about.  Other then that I don't have much to report.  I will do my best to update you all on how this trip is going.  Also I will try to take pictures, but I read this essay in an Environmental Studies class my senior year about how Americans tend to experience life through a lens by taking pictures and never really experiencing it, thus only forming memories of a picture not of the actual moment/scenery.  Since then I've stopped taking pictures as much and have been trying to live and experience life without the camera, buttt I know people want to see pictures so I'll do my best.
