I'll post about my visit to the Orphanage a little later.
Apologies for failing to report yesterday that Cambodia finished third in the WOVD Standing Volleyball World Cup with a 3 sets to 1 victory over Poland in the Third Play play-off. They were narrowly beaten in the semi-finals by Slovakia the night before, who in turn were beaten, 3-2 by Germany in the final. This was a great result for Cambodia, who finished 4th in the last two world cup competitions, and has generated a massive amount of positive publicity for the sport of disabled volleyball and for Cambodia itself, in staging this prestigious sporting event. Two Cambodians received individual tournament accolades: Mean Veasna won best server award and Nhen Buntheoun was recognised as the best defender.
