Phnom Kulen

Everyday in Siem Reap felt like an adventure with something new and exciting to do each day. Our third day was spent at Phnom Kulen. We were able to ride elephants, get our fortunes told, and pray. Not to mention, there was a huge waterfall for swimming! Admittedly, I don’t know how to swim. A friend of mine tried to teach me how to float in the past but that was a major fail. The extent of what I can do in water is walk in it but my feet have to touch the ground, otherwise I’d be a total goner. I walked in neck deep and totally started freaking out, it was all giving me anxiety. But I managed to walk on wet and slippery rocks to get a picture with my other UML and AUPP students on huge cliffs. I wish I could say I did it all on my own but they helped swim me back to safety.
