Our layover in Korea was a success because there was OO waiting for us almost like we had planned it that way. So for the second and last leg of the flight we were all together almost like we planned it that way.
We arrived in Phnom Penh at midnight, grabbed a cab and headed on to Velkommen Guesthouse which we booked ahead of time. If you have been privileged enough to have been following us since 2004, you know now that the one booking we always do ahead of time are the airplane/destination city. You never want to land in a 3rd world airport and not have a place to sleep. It keeps the stress down and the hoards of room hawking babies off your back. Our Guesthouse was located on a dark quiet offshoot downtown with a bar conveniently open and located across the street just in time for a cocktail before bed. It was a LONG day of travel. And there we met Rory - a Brit who has been living in Cambodia for the last 7 years. Completely off his rocker he served us up drinks and pure entertainment. If that kid lives to be 25 we will be amazed.
Why are you sleeping in the closet? Where is "the room" part? From, on Nov 22, 2012 at 02:44AM
Are you both sleeping on that bed? From, on Nov 25, 2012 at 04:50PM
So far, Cambodia is very much like Thailand with half the people, half the Traffic and one tenth the Tourists. The morning we took a Tuk-Tuk to a shuttle-bus that will then drive us to Siem Reap where the Temples of Angkor are located.
Some of my favorite photos are taken while driving through the countryside and villages outside of the bigger cities. And we have 5 hours of countryside to look at through the dirty windows of a speeding, honking, swerving shuttle bus. We saw a few things already that we haven't seen before which is always a highlight. One being a truck that had no shell...no roof, no windows, no fenders, - Just a seat, a steering wheel and a motor. The other, is the latest fashion trend which is matching top and bottom pj's. The ladies where them everywhere-the city, the country, to work, walking down a dirt road in the middle of nowhere.... It is almost like "skids" back in the late 80's. We will definitely snap a photo of this.

When our time share at the Royal Matan in Cancun was built this was the same type of scaffolding that was used 30 years ago in Mexico. From, on Nov 25, 2012 at 04:09PM
