People in Cambodia are super lovely, they keep giving us free stuff i.e. food, drink etc, although they do like to stare a lot... I went and sat outside in the sun for a bit with my eyes closed, opened my eyes two minutes later to find a group of people just looking at me.
We eventually arrived in Siem Reap, after 14 hours and rocked up to our hotel where we'd reserved two dorm beds. Firstly the word dorm can only be applied very loosely here as I think to be a dorm it kind of needs four walls. This place therefore failed at the first hurdle as it was less dorm more lots of beds outside. For some reason as well I had been put in a double bed with some randomer and Hannah was on a single bed near the toilets that bounced everytime someone went to the loo at night. So not a good nights sleep, especially as I had some heffalump next to me who felt it necessary to toss like a 400 pound fish every five minutes and let in about 100 mosquitoes as she fucked the net up...
Didn't do much on the first day as we needed to chill after the day of death and uber travel day so we just chilled at a pool. It is super hot here, definitely missing the chill of Ban Lung in the evening!
