Jun 27, 2013 - Tour Day 7 - Kompong Thom

Hi Folks. Good evening from Kompong Thom. It's now 9.20 in the evening and I have started to write today’s blog on a word document as there is no internet connection in my room and I can’t upload and pics. I usually do the pics first as they remind me of exactly what we did and where we did them throughout the day. I remember that the day started with a breakfast of eggs and bacon with French stick at a local restaurant back in Kratie. Today is the first day of electioneering here and it goes on for 1 month before actual elections. It seems...

Six gigantic bags of bananas were loaded on our first stop, and everything else was moved to rest against our bikes. At another stop a third bike was strapped to our bikes in the back - there was little we could do. The driver was in a big hurry, and he proceeded to ignore our pleas...

Oct 17, 2005 - Cambodia's little hidden treasures...

...one of the slogans of the Cambodian's ministry of tourism reads "Discover Cambodia's treasures!" Looking back at my last three days of touring through pretty untouristy parts of this country, I am convinced to comply: I did! And thereby discovered, that mainly the little, hidden ones (which you really have to discover for yourself) stay with me and keep my busy, when I write my diary before sliding under my mosquito-net... This discovery - of the beauty of the small - did not really come surprising after the huge and overwhelming temples...
