Lightening from a huge storm. We took about 200 photos and only one had a fork of lightening.
We were in Cambodia four years ago and it has changed a lot, sadly not all for the better. We spent one night in the capital Phnom Phen, which has become a bit on the sleezy side. We made a new friend on the bus ride there from HCMC, Emma, and went out for some dinner and drinks with her along the river front.
The next day we caught a bus to Sihanoukville for some chilled out beach time and a chance to top up that backpacker tan. Sihanoukville had gained plenty more bars over the years, but still had plenty of charm. We treated ourselves to a nice room with an amazing view of the coastline and spent days soaking up the sun, exploring the beaches, eating super fresh sashimi and drinking too much at a quiz night. We were a team of 3 Brits and 1 Australian, so our team name was '3 Poms and an Ozzy' and we came a respectable 3rd out of 8.
Being lazy on the beach here for days put us in good stead for our next stop...
Lots of love
Beach bums, Jim and Carla
