Day 18

... keep
warning them not to touch the slime but they paid little attention.
Anything slightly different attracts interest.

Once the rad was removed I
pulled the wiring loose, labelled it and set everything aside.

Once I had done that, I
removed the first of the engine bolts and loosened everything so I
was ready for when Steve got back to help with the heavy lifting.

And then the phone rang!

The bike had been dropped

New day, new country

... we have our boarding passes and through security. Sure enough when we land nobody cares that we don't have an onward ticket only that we pay the $40 US for our visas.

We arrive in Phnom Penh on Wednesday, Feb 12. Cambodia was originally not on our itinerary but after our visa fiasco in Singapore, I read where we can apply online in Cambodia and fly into Ho Chi Minh city. This whole visa process is starting to become a pain in the ass. Not only do they make ...

Day 2

... while laying on
the sofa, Jason on my chest while I stroked him for hours, he was
still too weak to move back then. He pulled through but was a late
bloomer. His development had been tripped up by his shaky start but
he's a remarkable success story, growing well and a healthy size,
fast and strong and can chew his way through a bone in minutes.
I had a phone call from
Steven. He managed to sort out the money issue by calling the head of
English ...

A Day of Contrasts

... by a NGO whose mandate is to help the children of Cambodia by providing training and housing so these children can get off the street. During lunch, Vaughn said there are numerous organizations that theoretically help children, but in reality the administrators take most of the money. He advised us to be careful when selecting charities in developing countries. Last night when we were at the FCC, there were brochures telling people the reasons they should not ...

Glass Eye Be Damned!

Travellers we spoke with either loved Cambodia, or hated it. Either way, this place challenges our concept of what it means to be a tourist in a developing country. We flew from Luang Prabang, Laos, directly to our first stop in Cambodia, Siem Reap so the "getting there" part of this journey was...well fast and easy. The rest of our stay in Cambodia was not as simple nor as easy, but it was rewarding all the same.
Siem Reap is a tourist town with a thin veneer ...

Had better food, better views and cleaner stays for less, but it's spacious and grand, and the staff are great. It's further outside the city than we had hoped, but the tuktuk rides are entertaining at every turn. Extra cost amount to about 5 USD each way, up to 20/day if you want to go back midday and out in the evening. Look for better deals around the river walk, where food and drink options are a-plenty. All the extra services - sauna/steam rm were closed, but the pool was small but nice setting.
