After 31 hours of travel I entered the airspace over Phnom Penh. It was a day of beauty. The sky was clear, the clouds a combination of wispy and billowy. I was tired.
When I arrived at my hotel, I took a nap. Mistake. What was inteded to be a little 30 minute snooze turned into 3 hours. I woke up groggy and fuzzy, like I had been at a slumber party all night. Now my internal clock is a mess, but it will adjust over the next few days. The uneventful day of arrival will fade into the past as a new day dawns. Thank you for your prayers.
My plan today is to take it easy (I’m in my 60’s after all) adjust to the timezone, drink coffee, and relax with some of the guys by watching the American pasttime. Perhaps we will watch the NLCS Baseball playoff game between the Dodgers and the Cubs? The game is on early here, 8:00 AM. I think I can stream it on my laptop, or there may be a place in the city that will broadcast it. My staff member Mout is working on that.
Everything begins with relationships and a bonding time with friends. Check back tomorrow and, Lord willing, I will have an update of the day. Until then, thank you for your prayers.
