... trying to sell you the usual jewellery and sunglasses, and ladies practically forcing you to get a pedicure, massage or threading - not such a relaxing way to spend an afternoon! On our third night the hotel was fully booked so we decided rather than just changing hotels to head out to one of the island resorts.

educational opportunities we've had back in the states--something we know now that we've taken for granted and will appreciate more in the future!
Our Bus ride to our home-stay in Kampong village (Kampong is the"green forest") was so nice and air conditioned! And the best part about it is that we each got our own ...
