But now it’s bed time for some shut eye. Another early start
tomorrow as we have to be fed and ready to go by 6.30am to make the Cambodia
crossing in good time. Although Cam did leave us with a nice treat he told us

... down in an air conditioned minibus after a couple of hours. First though we had to get to where the minibus was collecting us, taking a 'speed boat' (narrow Thai barge with a very noisy engine on the back) to a small village a bit upstream where we were split into two groups depending on our destination - some people were going on to a tiger sanctuary but we'd looked it up on line and he tigers aren't very well treaded so we decided to give it a miss and ...
