Kampot

Kampot is famous for its black pepper, stinky durian fruit and relaxed way of life.  In our five days here we’ve toured the surrounding countryside by motorcycle, climbed towering rock formations, visited temples and been unwound by fantastic blind masseurs.  There are a number of socially conscious local businesses that have been set up to help provide training and employment for people with disabilities.  We had coffee in an attractive art cafe run entirely by deaf staff where part of the profit goes to a local music and performing arts school for disabled children.  Everyone in this charming town has greeted us with smiles and waves and we will be sad to leave all the friendly faces when we head to the capital, Phnom Penh, tomorrow.
