My eldest came by to pick up her official papers we keep in our safe because she needs to expedite her passport renewal all of the sudden - she's going to Cambodia on a missions trip in June!

She's always had a heart for the people of Asia so she's excited at the opportunity. Says "I've been studying their history and language, it has a lot of the same sounds that Japanese uses so I'm picking it up." Now I get to be the gathering point for whatever monetary support she can wrangle on short notice to cover the passport, shots, plane ticket etc. She needs 3k, we'll see how it goes.

Life is never boring, is it?

That will be a great experience for her! How exciting.

One of my nephews went to China last year as part of an ESL/tutor group and it was definitely an amazing time for him. He is about 6'5" and the tinier Chinese were constantly stopping to take selfies with him just because of his height, heee!

The trip should be very exciting and educational. Cambodia has a rich history and some of the best archeological sites in Indochina. I spent four years working in Asia in the late 70's, but regretfully never got into Cambodia because of the turmoil there at the time. I hope your daughter has many great adventures there!
