Motorcycle fail

By noon my clothes weren't even close to being done. I had to sort through them to find my pants, shoes and sweater. I didn't want to be scratching myself up or worse while wearing a summer dress and flip flops. It's like I had some premonition that I would screw the whole motorcycle thing up, before I even got on it.

Turned out that was the right idea because as soon as Enzo sat on the back, I started the motor up and completely flipped us backwards. There was no clutch, so I was revving it in neutral wondering why it didn't go. When I finally figured out how to switch gears and put it into first, the bike just took off, sent us flying backwards, pinned my foot under it and gave us both identical elbos scrapes. Enzo probably also hurt his back really bad. I apologized over and over again and then we switched to a fully automatic scooter. Much better. I drove very carefully down to the waterfall.

We spent what was left of the afternoon snacking on taro pastries in the mist. As the sun went down we went back for dinner at Khmer Kitchen, where a cute puppy was chewing on my flip flops for the better part of an hour.

Enzo's hotel seemed a lot cooler than mine, he was staying in a hut in a field. So, I followed him there in hopes there would be one more vacant hut fo me. On the way there we braved some crazy dogs and passed a hopping wedding party. I couldn't resist. I made Enzo come with me and people were really friendly. A ittle too friendly, because they were aggressively pushing us onto the dance floor, even after we had danced with them for quite a while. I decided it was getting a little too pushy and bee lined it for the hotel. I skyped my parents soon afterwards and went to bed in my hut three metres from the ground.
