So this is it the last entry from th kids blog on this trip. We've enjoyed Phnom Penh, the shopping has been great after being very restrained for the rest of the trip. Holly's favourite was the Russian market and buying Gap tshirts for $2.50. A trip to a big toy shop "Toys and Me". And a fun trip to Dreamland where we got to be the only people doing the rides.
Every night of our holiday we have voting at dinner time. First we vote for who has been the best behaved then we vote for funniest. Last night was our final vote. Holly has scooped first prize with Dad and Toby a close second equal. This means Holly gets to plan a day when we get home which she is very excited about.

Last night we took some of our clothes down the road and gave them to a family. They were things that weren't going to fit us next summer. It took a lot of role playing but we finally got across that we wanted them to keep them not wash them. It seemed to work as later we walked past and one of the kids was wearing a pair of Toby's pajamas.
