A bit speechless… watch the video.
Okay so now that you’ve watched the video, I think you understand why I was taken back. I met a family friend upon arrival, so Uncle David, a native Cambodian, drove me around Phnom Penh (a major city in Cambodia) and I couldn’t believe the chaos. At one point I had to close my eyes because I was having miniature heart attacks… but I’m told that you get use to it after awhile.
PS: If you chose not to watch the video and you’re a foreigner (especially women), do not drive in Cambodia. It’s not because you’re not a good driver, it’s because you’ll get a ticket because you’re a foreigner and/or a woman.
