Where I stayed
The beach isn't all relaxing and drinking though. There are a fair amount of beggars, amputees with arms or legs missing due to (I'm assuming) landmine accidents that pull themselves along the beach smiling and holding out their hand
We've had a lot of fun though. Phil is a good time and I'm glad he decided to come join us. There are fire dancers performing by the beachfront bars and I even gave it a go a couple times. The seafood BBQs are delicious and cheap, and a lot of places have live music at nighttime.
We've also met a few interesting characters. Phil had an altercation with a lady-boy who wouldn't keep his(her?) hands to him(her?)self. A pretty nutty guy named 'G' (yes, only 'G') who must be over 50 has semi-befriended us, he's a bit off his rocker but relatively harmless... apparently the local children call him the 'Ghost' and the few times he tried to order a drink from a bar we were at he was turned down for reasons probably going waay back.
But, now, it's really time to go. We've spent way too long here, drank too much, we need to move on and give our bodies a break (again, sorry mom). So tomorrow it's onto a bus and then 10 hours to Siem Reap, home of the wonderous Angkor Wat.. pride of all Cambodians.
