Today we spent the day with the kids playing games and decorating their bedrooms.

Being the wet season, there are lots of bugs around and many of the kids had open wounds which we cleaned and dressed for them. We'll probably keep changing the dressings over the next week, so hopefully most will heal before we get to the sand and salt-water...

In the late afternoon we all headed to Siem Reap to have dinner at a restaurant - over 50 of us... The kids ate their fill before we headed to the carnival and some rides... A great night was had by all!! :-)

The kids took to decorating their rooms with great zeal...
Alex is on-hand to lend a hand...

As is Steph...

On for young and old... "Like this?"...

Yip, as simple as that... :-)

The kids in their best clothes getting ready to leave the
orphanage on the way to dinner and the carnival...


The family at a Khmer restaurant... Over 40  kids...


A table as long as the camera can capture... :-)

Ryan on the back of Theavy's motorbike heading to
the carnival

Alex and Steph with some of the boys on the tuk-tuk...

And the kids piling-off the truck at the carnival...

The little kids headed straight to the jumping-castle...

And the big kids to the dodgem cars...

Sehn and Pom-Senh, Seyha and Ryan - on the grid...

Veasna and Theurn - not watching where they're going...
Or are they... ;-)

In the cage ready for a spin.....

Here we go.......

Interesting phenomenon - the faster the wheel spun,
the louder the screams...... :-))))

The little kids had dodgem cars too...

And a train...

But not as big and fast as the big kids' train....
Just check-out the smiles..... :-)))))

Actually we couldn't get them off.....

Of-course everyone got a turn...
And we negotiated a 10 minute ride for them.... :-)

The kids that weren't on the ride had just as much fun!!

The kids on the way back to the orphanage -
another fun day in their memory banks... ;-)


Tomorrow is Sports Day......
