From our travels Cambodia and America are the only two countries that have something in common. Power cuts. Yes we woke today to a powercut and apparently these happen all the time in California just like Phomn Penn!! and here we were thinking we were not in a third world country!

Gary and Ann drove us today down through Los Angeles to near San Diego where my nephew Sean lives with his delightful three young children. I'd forgotton just how hilly LA is and we were lucky in that the traffic was flowing well, all five lanes of it. Sean took us all out to lunch at a buffet style Mexican place and seeing all that food, with all those choices made my stomach groan!! I can't help feeling it is a bit obscene after travelling through Asia seeing so much wasted food on plates.

Drove back and stopped in Orange county to see Jason's appartment, the strange thing here was that just outside his complex were three oil 'donkeys'nodding their head, obviously bringing up oil from the ground beneath!! Strange to see these in a street.
