CAMBODIA with Brian and Marisha (and OO)
About this blog
Thank you, thank you, thank you that we are back in the swing of travel. And like every trip before, people ask "Why Cambodia"?... Well, for a relatively small country it really packs in the highlights we look for. From isolated jungle Temples to Trpoical islands and National parks. ..not to mention the food, the culture and the people. After 3 decades of war, having been to Hell and back, Cambodia has opened it's arms to the world. Despite it's beautiful backdrop and having the Mother of all Temples in it's backyard, It is still one of the poorest countries in the world. It is in worse shape than Congo and just scraped ahead of Myanmar (Burma). Tourism is here, but very lopsided. Most suitcase travelers don't come here unless it's on a flight in and out of Siem Reip and the Tenples of Angkor and that suits us just fine. And...For the first time in years, we are traveling with someone else. You all know him, he married us.....Jim (Double O) or OO throughout this journal.
