Looks like I am a millionaire, but as noone seemed to take Cambodian Riels it was a tad awkward!
10 hour bus trip today from bangkok to sim reap, had a few stops, sorted a Cambodian visa and crossed the border with no problems. It was a lot easier than I imagined, but was surprised at the amount of younger people getting worked up about it and couldn't decide if to go by taxi or bus after the border crossing.

I had decided on taxi and clubbed together with a guy from Barcelona ( who moaned at everything!) and a young Japanese girl who kept shaking her head and saying "this don't make sense" Which was cute!

At the border it was stinking hot, but I remembered you at home and smiled, and enjoyed it!

In Cambodia today it is a huge festival for sending gifts to dead ancestors and it made me think, what would I send my dead ancestors? A couple of em would defi have got contraceptives to use before they died in the hope that might have stopped a few of the annoying ones we got left with From ever appearing; I might have backdated some sort contraption to remove a few vocal chords and I would certainly have a word with doc

Highly recommended. Very clean, very cheap and Hak and his staff could not have done more to make guests welcome. He arranged yuk time, advise as to the best days out etc. His staff are amazing and made me feel like someone special!
brown to see if he could nip to Benin (land of voodoo) in his time machine and get them to .... Actually, on 2nd thoughts...

It was great seeing the Cambodians. They all gathered around the many rivers having family gatherings; so simple, but they all looked happy.

Tomorrow I am going to visit some floating villages on the huge lake, at tea time I am going to book a guide to show me the famous Angkor wat temples for the day after, and go to see the amazing sunset.

Right now, it is about 7pm and I m done in!

I am going to get my camera and see if I can add some photos! Tara fer nah
