Well finally after being stuck on a bus for over 16 hours we made it from Bangkok to Siam Reap. It was a real roller coaster ride sitting in the back of the mini bus, being thrashed around the seat, swerving all over the road to attempt to avoid major pot holes in the road, strolling cows, and on coming vechiles. Luckily the rain had subsided, so we didn't get stuck in the mud.(althoug at time we came cloce to it)
We managed to book into a cheap local hostel, and crash out from exhaustion soon after arrival!.

***Land mine alert***
Although Cambodia is now in peace time, there still remains an estimated 4 million land mines that scatter the country, so this is not the place to walk off the main roads. Even though there are locals working to try to remove most of the hidden mines, over 80 people a month loose limbs, and ive seen many locals walking around minus one leg.
I really have to be careful, not to stray off the main roads accidently.
