Driving and get ready for race!
I was very happy to go to Siem Reap for a race. I went to Siem Reap because I have a bike and running race. On Friday I woke up and showered to get ready for this trip. I left Liger at 8am with my friends, Jojo, and Max. I went to Siem Reap with Animal Guide Exploration group, Bike group and Running group. It was a very nice day. In the bus that I was in there were many luggages at the back of the seat. So we need to take one bus and one van to drive. In the van there are teachers and some stuffs, for the bus we have students, Jojo, Max and a lot of materials that we bring with us. We ate lunch around 12:30pm. Our lunch was sandwhich. We ate in the bus because we don’t want to stop. In the bus we were watching movie called Mummy and the other one called Garden of the Galaxy. It was so fun and I sometimes felt headache because I tried to look at the TV. In the bus I also play Catan. Catan is the game that look like minecraft, but it not in computer. I played with Sythong and Kahna. Later I felt headache so I stop play this game. At the afternoon around 2pm we stop and relax. We bought some snacks and played frisbee. I felt very happy at that time because I can get the fresh air, I will not get car sick again! When we arrived Siem Reap I went to one place to buy a shirt for bike and for running. I also go and pick the bike that fit me. When I saw a bike I think it to big for me. Oh my god! How can I ride this big bike to race with the other people? But I tried to ride that bike and I started to like it. After that my bike group went to Sunrise where we will sleep. I arrived and eat dinner there. It was yummy! I also met a lot of friends there. They were so friendly and kind. At night I go to playground that is in Sunrise to play with Soliday. We were swang the swing and played another game. In the room I also played card with Poppy, Gorgie and our friends, Sythong, Dalin, Soliday, Vattey and Kahna. When we play the games Soliday always lost. Then Jojo come in and said that we all should gone to bed at 8:30pm and now it’s 9pm, so please get in bed. When I heard that I brush my teeth and sleep. Tomorrow I need to bike and I was very excited.
Bike race and in Sunrise!
At 4:30am I woke up and get ready for the bike race. I still feel asleep but I was trying to not feel tired. In the morning, 6am it’s time to race. I bike for 30k and it was far and long way round. When I bike, I saw a lot of people biking around me, I think it around five hundred people who was biking 30km. When I bike I saw one man, he told me that you should make your saddle higher than this! Then I stop and told Mr. Jeff to help me. I ride, I think I was passed because there were a lot of big people. When I rod I also saw two men get crash with each other and one man he got blood on his body. Along the road I felt that I hurt my back because I sit for two hours to ride the bike. It was so hard for me! During the race, there were people that gave us water. When they give the water to me, I didn’t stop the bike, I just ride and my right hand, take the water bottle from that person. I drink it and I don’t want to throw it away, but I saw a lot of people throw the water bottle away. When I raced I really like to shift the bike again and again, it was so fun for me. After I finished the race, I drink juice and get the medal. Rithy, Vuthy, Menghourt, Dom, Mr. Jeff and I wait for teacher Reksmey to finish her race. When teacher Reksmey came we were looking for Max too. Max sign up for 100k bike race.100k is a lot! I can not do that, if I did, I will die. After we saw Max bikes, we stop watching and went for breakfast. My breakfast was Khmer noodle. It was yummy because I am hungry. Then I went back to Sunrise and play Capture the flag. They was so small. Most of them didn’t respect the rules. But never mind I just told Mr. Jeff. After we finished playing, we went into Sunrise’s theatre to watch Sunrise performance. They performed Khmer dance and it was so cool because they were skillful. At Sunrise I saw one boy that his face looks like Davith, but he was smaller than Davith. His name is Pich. After we finished watching the Khmer dance performance, we ate lunch and went back to that theatre again to listen to Sunrise presentation and present Liger presentation. After listen to Sunrise presentation, it’s Liger turn. We start our presentation. Everyone introduced their name. Sythong and Seyha are the hosts. It was the presentation, but I wasn’t saying anything. I just say my name and help Niron one thing about Geography. You know why I can not saying anything? Because we have short time and some people spoke a lot so the last person they can not speak anything. At the AE presentation, I want tp talk about Asean Politics, but I can not because my presentation was not in the google presentation. I hate that, I nearly cry but then I thought, I also have one more thing to say, don’t give up! Culture Shock is the Exploration that I wanted to say. But then Jojo come and said to us, sorry for some of us that can not present because it is time. So my tears came out from my eyes, I am trying to keep my tears to not fall off. I just think that, first person speak a lot but they didn’t give a chance to the last person. But it is okay. After that we went to play football with Sunrise kids. At that time Jojo was not there because she is busy. When we played already we get one to one, but then we have Pelonete. We were got zero and Sunrise were got two! It’s so bad because we let Sunrise beat us!. But when the boy played they get three to zero. Did you think it is cool? After playing football we come back, we shower and having a party. The party was dancing and watching movie. But I wasn’t dance. I just play with Sunrise students and some of Liger students. It was fun but a little bit tired. Then I sleep because tomorrow I have a running racing.
I woke up at 4:40am. I wore the shirt and get ready for a race. The shirt was too big for me and it is hard to wear, but it is okay because I only wear it for two hours so don’t be tuft. I and my others friends were drove to Angkor Wat to race. I was saw a lot of people. I think it was around eight thousand people who is running. When I was arrived I felt nervous and surprised because this is my first time. The race began. I was ran half Marathon at Angkor Wat. So it mean I ran 10km. When I ran I passed a lot of people because I am small and easy to run through. One time I stopped running and walk because I am tired. But then one man run and touch to give me a sign- I think he mean that don’t stop running- please keep running. Then I ran and I feel happy because there was a man that cheered for me to be strong. When I ran there were many people that gave the water to me just like the bike race. But I didn’t take the water because I don’t want to stop running and one more thing is I afraid that my stomach will get hurt. I hope that I can run all the way of 10km( Half Marathon). After I was finished running, I go to get the medal and went back to Sunrise. I came back, pack and ready to come back to Liger. I felt a little bit dizzy because I just finished the run race and I afraid that I will get car sick. When I ride in a van I felt sleepy sometimes, but it’s hard to sleep because we need to sit with a lot of people in one small van. I just sit and if I want to sleep I need to put my head down and just close my eyes. During the time that we ride the van, we have one problem. The wheels of the van nearly broke, so we need to find the place to change the wheels. Then we need to wait for 30 minutes. We were come back to Liger and sleep. When we were arrived Liger everyone seem to be tired because most of us just eat a little bit of rice at dinner room.
