Meeting other family

We traveled to the countryside in Kratie Province, Cambodia for Khmer New Year. For Hina, it’s exciting, adventurous, and challenging.

On the first day we arrived, we saw a big wooden house, where we will stay for one night. Hina was hungry after a long travel, and she expected to have white rice. But what they prepared was Khmer porridge. It’s tasty to me. But Hina is not a fan of Khmer food.

She tried a bit, but she couldn’t eat. This is a good learning for her. We follow their house policy if we stay at their house. She met a new culture.

She was so hungry that she started to ask for alternatives. The family prepared hot water and she ate instant noodles. She was very thankful and she smiled, saying thanks for hot water in Khmer.

Every family has their own culture just like we do. Homestay can give us opportunities to know about other cultures and respect them.

She enjoyed drawing with other children. She also showed her artwork to the family after she drew about their village and house.
