As I was getting ready to leave the hotel for the bus station, one of my bags hooked onto the handle of the nightstand. As I tugged at my bag, the drawer opened, and inside was a condom. I wonder if it was left by the hotel or the previous guest? This is my second hotel in Cambodia, and the second one to have a condom in it. My guess is it was left by the hotel. After all, as a Buddhist country, what good is a Gideon Bible?
The bus ride is uneventful, but parts of the countryside are just beautiful. The journey takes six hours, as was stated. I get pissed again thinking that the Siem Reap/Battambang leg is about half the distance than the Battambang/Phnom Penh leg, and took the same amount of time.
I get to my hotel, once inside my room, I check to see if any condoms are available, but don't see any. Maybe because they spent all their condom money on glamour shots of hotel rooms that don't exist! My room looks absolutely nothing like what is shown on its website, which was what I based my booking on, along with the great reviews. The other rooms I have a chance to look at look like mine. The hotel isn't bad, but it isn't what i thought I was getting either. The staff is okay, but much prefers to spend their time on Facebook or texting on their phone, as all of Thailand, Laos, Vietnam and the other parts of Cambodia do. It's like being back at home.
Hsving to get up early two days in a row is very exhausting. I crash at my hotel, the sightseeing can wait until tomorrow.
