In the words of Bon Jovi “Whoa, we’re halfway there!” It’s hard to believe that our international seminar is just over halfway complete. Before we loaded the bus to head back to a Phnom Penh, Christy began the day reviewing the Community Capitals that we have seen in the previous days. Cambodia might be a developing country, but there are so many assets these communities have. Since change has been a constant for all of us, Toby then had us get into our EQi groups for us to contemplate how we have dealt with the changes that happen on a seminar such as this.
We then said goodbye to Siem Reap and headed back to Phnom Penh. Along the way we visited a Cashew Nut farm and saw how they process the Cashews.

One of the things that has struck at all of our hearts are the stories of the Khmer Rouge history from 1975-1979. Millions of people were lost, but the stories of survivors, like Dr. Noy Shoung, help us to understand a bit more the complicated history of this place. It is great to have someone like Noy to help us in our journey.

As we arrived back in Phnom Penh, we turned our attention to the next leg of our journey-Taiwan.
