May 13, 2007 - Boob-lash

Well today was one I won't forget real quick. I was picked up from my hotel at 6.30am to get taken to the VIP bus...or so I thought. A mini bus pulled up and that was as I found out, going to be the transport all the way to the border. Kind of thought the ticket was a bit too cheap. Met the people who were already on board. There were four French of which one, Fabreece, spoke very good English. One girl, Diana from Hawaii, and two other girls from Holland. Although Grace looked Dutch, Yin (you can tell from that!) did not look Dutch at all....

Mar 19, 2005 - Adventures in Cambodia

Hello again - We've just completed 4 days exploring the ancient Khymer capital of Angkor. The ruins are really extensive so we've only touched the surface. The complexes of Angkor Wat, Angkor Thom, the Elephant and Leper Terraces, the Bayan, and a fabulous monastery that has been kept largely as it was when it was rediscovered (by Europeans) in mid 19th century were the highlights. Another World Heritage Site (WHS). Might as well plan the trip to include as many of these as possible. Last night we celebrated a famous Cambodian holiday - St...
