Expat Q&A: Bring knickers

In this series we talk to Cambodia expats about what they wish they had known when they first moved to Cambodia that they know now. This week we talk to Michelle Alexander, who works in media and communications for CARE International.

Originally from Melbourne, Michelle splashed across the Mekong from Vietnam. While living in Vietnam for a year, she found herself visiting Cambodia regularly, drawn to the the sunrise aerobics, fabulous vintage clothing scene, the gentle culture and widespread availability of polka dot everything. She’s lived in Cambodia for nearly two years.

MTC: Michelle, what do you know now that you wish you had known when you first moved to Cambodia?

MA: “Quite simply, I wish I had’ve known how long I would stay in our charming little play Penh; I would’ve brought more knickers.”
