Yesterday I rode nineteen miles–just within the city of Phnom Penh—on the back of a motorcycle taxi going to meetings, visiting a hospital, etc. That is not fun. As an extra exciting element, we had a tremendous rainstorm while I was out. My motorcycle taxi driver (above) and I could see it coming so I stopped and bought a cheap plastic rain poncho like he is putting on, and then when the first drops started we pulled off and covered up before resuming the ride. If you’re on the back of a motorcycle, the poncho can’t cover your legs so I was soaked from the waist down.
