Where has the time gone??
It's been a looooong while since I posted the last update, I know, but it's all been for good reason, and now that I've re-established myself in this new, exciting, challenging and unpredictable location with endless opportunities, I'll be slowly filling in the blanks that have seen me through the back end of 2009, from Vietnam and Burma to Thailand and through Cambodia. As and when I get the chance of course. There is after all, a lot to do here.
Right now I have very little internet access (just a weak signal through my mobile) so I can't send anything sizeable, just a few frequent one-liners. On the rare occasion that I do venture into civilisation I'll try and post more (including pics) but for now, all I can say is that things are... unique.
So where am I? I'm in the Krong Kep province of southern Cambodia, living in the jungle, near the coast, without electricity or gas and blissfully free from commercial consumerism. I'm living on a constant supply of fresh organic food among the gibbons, the crickets, the cobras, the swaying palms, the millions of birds and billions of stars. This is simplicity at its finest and the perfect package of peace and quiet. And once again I'm surrounded by wholesome people. The Khmers really are a delightful bunch, and to be at the heart of things with an endless amount of opportunity just within reach is a wonderful privilege.
So for now I'll leave things there and get back to unfolding the never ending story. Just trust me when I say that going to sleep every night under a blanket of brilliant stars while the bats clown around in the moonlight is just magnificent. And waking up to the call of gibbons at sunrise is an experience I simply cannot put into words right now. So yeah, big big grins for 2010.. :)
