This is not really a travel update, more of a quick pit-stop. Happy 50th b-day Dad, BOTH WISH WE COULD BE THERE. drink one for me.

yesterday we took the long bus down to Sihanoukville in the south of the country, which is a small port town, created in the 1950's. the bus ride down (just our luck), was again eventful, with the bus breaking down, and having to sit and wait for a new one for 3 hours, but things could always be worse. a little man pulled up with his ice cream van, whcih was a real life saver for 7p an ice cream. out here in cambodia, they also serve ice cream in a bread baggette. have yet to try it, but it's only matter of time.

our first impressions were positive, and we have a really laid back hostel, with two mighty brittish bulldogs live there (possibly the only ones in cambodia), called Elvis and Deep Throat. They have t-shirts there with pictures of elvis the dog, saying Elvis still lives. the place was quite loud at night (becoming old man), and rather than partying peoples, felt alot more like old man brothels ville. gonna keep busy with national parks etc over the next few days, and maybe slot some beach time in, or even a dive, before heading back norwards.

don't party to hard old man, that stuff will kill ya.

What happened when clock struck middnight
Danny/Kate....a quick message from the Old Man...
I didn't know what to do, it got to middnight and suddenly I was 50 !!! what was I to do ? should I order my wheelchair now ? should I start going to bed at 8pm and watching Eastenders ?
After some calming down by Mum, I arrived at a decision........WE ARE GOING TO HAVE A BLOODY GOOD DECADE OR TWO AND REALLY ENJOY OURSELVES (will have to see how the money lasts !)
See you in Australia ? get the ashes tickets ready ?

Thanks for for thinking of me on my birthday.

Love Dad

ps....didn't manage to open video clip which was really frustrating, will have another go tomorrow.
