Wow, a high chair - in Siem Reap, Cambodia
After nearly one month in south-east Asia, visiting westernized Siem Reap gave us mixed feelings. Happy to find back our marks, with good coffee, pastries and ice-cream, but already missing the charm of markets and street food (probably the latter is to be found again off the tourist tracks). It is a nice, well-decorated, slightly over-budget restaurant, with an appetizing street-side Khmer barbecue, that attracted us for dinner. We sat, all 5, when the waitress arrived with a high chair. Oh wow, a high chair! After 4 weeks spent eating every two meal with a child on our lap (we take turns), we could both enjoy a hands-free, lap-free dinner. What a sensation of freedom!
