In my down time today, I visited several socially responsible crafts vendors, hung out and read for a few hours in the Peace Cafe's lovely garden, and had another foot massage at Baray spa.

We also visited Blossom for some delicious mini-cupcakes. Please note that they always have two gluten-free flavors (using nut meals, among other ingredients). Melissa gave us a spirited description of how many ingredients can't be obtained or behave differently in Cambodia, necessitating creativity.

Melissa helped us find the new Somaly Mam beauty shop across from the Angkor Children's Hospital. Three of my students have appointments tomorrow.

Interesting fact: Marijuana is illegal but pig farmers are permitted to grow it, because they stuff the leaves in the pigs' mouths to sedate them when taking them to market tied to a tuk-tuk.
