Caritas Cambodia Retreat / Day 1

The Deaf Development Programme is now under Caritas Cambodia, and every year Caritas has a long retreat with all the staff to build community, share the vision of Caritas, and just allow the staff to enjoy being together outside of work. Today almost 200 project staff traveled to the Catholic center in Sihanoukville for the retreat.

Because there are so many staff attending the retreat, some of us are staying in a guesthouse across the street. This is a view from my fourth-floor room overlooking Cambodia’s only harbor.
There was nothing on the schedule today except arrival at the center and a dinner at 7:00 PM.
After eating, Soknym and Thea who drove us down to the coast took us out to one of Sihanoukville’s beaches. It was the first time I had seen the beach and town at night and it was quite impressive.
