Welcome to Phnom Penh

Overwhelmed by this city!!!   Phnom Penh, the capital city of Cambodia with a population of 2.2 million people and covering over 675 squared Km, feels strange as the third world is clear and so many buildings are few stories, but it’s crowded like a buzzing metropolis.  Crazy, crowded traffic, so many people and a lot of buildings.  At first glimpse I only saw five sky scrapers as I entered the city but the view from the roof of my ten floor hotel, there are more but they are certainly not overrunning the city.  The low buildings give it a closed in, busy feel.

Tried to capture the feel of the traffic but it didn’t much work
