I walked out from the only one exit of the Phnom Penh Airport at around 3PM and looked for CBB staffs, but I couldn’t.
Feeling very lonely and scary, I walked around and around.
Finally, in order to contact with CBB members, I entered a hamburger shop, bought a cheese burger and got a Wi-Fi password.
Then, I connected Wi-Fi and sent messages to two CBB members.
After I ate it, I walked around the exit again.
Then, a cute girl asked me whether I am Natsuo.
She was one of the CBB members.
She was sorry to forget the board to tell me that she was a CBB member.
We took her bike and went to her house.
I thought we would go to CBB it was surprising.
On the road, there were many people who road their bikes and more bikes than cars.
There were also interesting buildings and most of them seemed being built.
When I entered her house, another girl had already been there.
We talked with each other in Japanese and English and I tried to speak English as much as I could to improve myself.
However, of course they almost always talked in Cambodian language so I sometimes felt lonely.
After I rested for a little time, they took me many interesting places, such as shops, local festivals, a university, markets, restaurants, and so on.
It is very surprising that children were often clerks, there were many people in the festivals and they enjoyed listening to music and chatting there, there were many bikes and a big pond in the university, there were many interesting foods and clothing in the festivals.
At dinner, I ate suki-soup, which is a banquet in Cambodia with three CBB members.
All of foods I ate were very new and strange taste.
The most surprising in a first day was many young people used their smartphones even when they were working.
I was also surprised that we cannot have hot shower and some small bugs flied in the room, but they didn’t care at all.
At night, they still used LINE and communicated with their friends.
They seemed to like LINE very much and used smartphones for more time than Japanese.
At midnight, many mosquitos flied, so I couldn’t sleep well.
I could sleep at about 3AM when there were few mosquitos.
There were no TV, enough lights, a washer, an air conditioner, gas, a freezer, but smartphones.
Looking back now, experiences of the first day in Cambodia was the most surprising for me.
