I am going back to London, I resisted it for ages but when the Programme Director at work advised me to leave, I listened.
This whole COVID 19 situation has scuppered my plans which I am very disappointed about. I don’t think that I did half of what I wanted to here in PP but I met some amazing people, fellow volunteers and local Khmer people who are trying hard to improve the country.
Why am I leaving? Well, if I were to catch the virus, I would be on my own in a foreign country where I don’t know the language, don’t trust the government nor the health facilities.
I will share some of my observations during my 8 weeks here, it’s a great place even though it is noisy, busy, dusty, dirty and smelly in places!!
I am going to spend the rest of my day packing up my nice new studio flat into the extra case that I have to yet buy, and then reflect on things when I get back.
Watch this space!
