Today we packed to leave Cambodia and say goodbye to our new friends Dr. Noy and his wife Reaksmey. Before we departing we presented our hosts with gifts from Minnesota, including some Vikings football apparel. To our surprise Dr. Noy had gifts for us from his work with the UN.
Before leaving we worked Toby and Christy on a few EQi competencies, focusing stress tolerance and problem solving. In our groups we went over how we each handle stress, ways that we can help mitigate it and turning it into a positive mindset.
Once we cleared security we found Brown Coffee which is a local brand recommended by our guide. We were excited to finally be able to try it and no one was disappointed with the coffee.
After our flight to Taiwan we were able to meet our new guide Jean. After we collected our luggage and got outside the weather change hit us. The high temperature was 75 and partly cloudy compared to 90+ in Cambodia. While everyone was sad to leave we are excited for the change of not being so hot.
As we traveled to our hotel we stopped at the Tong Hai Fish Village restaurant for a traditional Taiwanese meal. Dessert consisted of fresh fruit which has been wonderful in both locations. We are excited to get out and experience Taiwan tomorrow.
