  • Happy pizza, oh dearI woke up real early. Part of my high ticket price went to a tuk tuk driver who would bring me to the bus station. He never showed up. I waited an hour int he lobby, said goodbye to Helen Posted by baixing in No Fixed Address | Feb 8, 2017
  • Why are there so many irritating old men in Asia?The moto driver picked me up right on time, and I got in the van destined for Sra'Em, finally. They dropped me off in another dusty town where I was shoved into a car and my bag was strapped to Posted by baixing in No Fixed Address | Feb 9, 2017
  • Prasat Preah VihearIt was freezing when my moto driver brought me to the park office, 20 km away. He would wait for me until noon and then we'd go back home. I saw my missionary friends waiting for the rest of their Posted by baixing in No Fixed Address | Feb 10, 2017
  • Museum and palace dayWith the visa stuff all sorted out, I had the whole day free until Jo came. I woke up early to visit the royal palace, but it was closed until 2 p.m. So, national museum, it would be. There was Posted by baixing in No Fixed Address | Jan 26, 2017
  • Busy day in the PenhToday was super busy! I picked Jo up at the airport in the morning and then we pretty much went straight to Tuol Sleng, S-21 prison, on the other side of town. It was really heavy and depressing. 21,000 people Posted by baixing in No Fixed Address | Jan 27, 2017
  • Took the boat to Siem ReapI woke up a little early to buy some snacks at the market, where I saw some lady boys, still awake and arguing about something. I picked up a huge bunch of bananas and a ton of longan fruit. We Posted by baixing in No Fixed Address | Jan 28, 2017
  • First day at Angkor WatWe went on our rental bikes to buy our three day Angkor Wat tickets. I briefly pondered a seven day pass, but realized I'd be templed out after three days anyway. So we took the long rout on the first Posted by baixing in No Fixed Address | Jan 29, 2017
  • Second day at Angkor WatWe took a smaller loop today, with Ta Prohm and Sra Srang on the agenda. Ta Prohm is the "Tomb Raider" temple, I guess because some of the scenes from the movie were shot here. The trees have overgrown the Posted by baixing in No Fixed Address | Jan 30, 2017
  • Third day at Angkor WatToday was the big day, we got up real early to see the sunrise over Angkor Wat. Many people had the same plan, and I watched a group of Indian-Australian bros discuss the best way to adjust their SLRs for Posted by baixing in No Fixed Address | Jan 31, 2017
  • History dayWe spent the better part of the day in teh Angkor Museum, learning about all the stuff we had just seen. I especially liked the stories they told to kids, such as this one: Garuda's father (Garuda is an immortal bird Posted by baixing in No Fixed Address | Feb 1, 2017
  • The boat to Battambang (and pick up truck)We woke up real early to go to the boat dock. 6:30 was too early. The woman who picked us up was way late, and then we waited some more for a minivan to take us from the collection point, Posted by baixing in No Fixed Address | Feb 2, 2017
  • Wandering around town and the circusI could hardly get out of bed, but I did anyway to find Mahe (Molly Ringwald). She had made a be-dreadlocked friend from Germany and we all ate breakfast for a few hours, not wanting to go out at all. Posted by baixing in No Fixed Address | Feb 3, 2017
  • Really busy day around BattambangOur hostel organized a tour leaving in the morning and coming back in time for dinner. The first stop was the bamboo train. All the ladies went on one car together. I was glad for that because earlier in the Posted by baixing in No Fixed Address | Feb 4, 2017
  • Depressing night in Phnom PenhThe morning was drizzly, so I stayed in bed until checkout. It was so soft and warm, I watched the rain fall down through the open door of my hut. I finally had my first hot shower after two weeks Posted by baixing in No Fixed Address | Jan 14, 2017
  • To the southMy big mission of the day was to drop my visa extension application off at the immigration department. I read in the guidebook that it was a complicated process, so I went to Facebook for help. I found a couple Posted by baixing in No Fixed Address | Jan 15, 2017
  • My man GeneI tried to sleep in, but it never works. I got dressed slowly and found a small pharmacy to find something for my burning and itching hand. The pharmacist phoned the local doctor, who spoke English with a strong French Posted by baixing in No Fixed Address | Jan 16, 2017
  • Rabbit IslandI woke up and walked to the jetty at about 8 a.m. Guess who I saw again. All those guys making the movie. I walked right by and bought my ticket for the boat to Rabbit Island. I had some Posted by baixing in No Fixed Address | Jan 17, 2017
  • It's not a worm!In the morning I went straight to the hospital, even before it opened. This way, I was first in line. The doctor confirmed that I didn't have a parasitic skin worm, but actually some sort of fungus and he told Posted by baixing in No Fixed Address | Jan 18, 2017
  • Relaxing on SamloemMy hostel booked me a cheap mini van to Sihanoukville, and a nice Israeli lady gave me a pen when mine died as I was writing my journal. I took the next boat to Koh Rong Samloem, a quieter island than Posted by baixing in No Fixed Address | Jan 19, 2017
  • LighthouseThe hotel manager told me I could go see a lighthouse on top of a hill, so after sleeping in until 10, I headed over there. It was a gentle hike, but not one that Anna could've handled with her sprained Posted by baixing in No Fixed Address | Jan 20, 2017
  • Missed the boatIt was a lazy day spent using the wifi and talking about the Trump inauguration at Secret Paradise all morning. I went to catch the boat to the main Koh Rong island, and after some massive confusion, I found out Posted by baixing in No Fixed Address | Jan 21, 2017
  • Goodbye watchThe sea was quite rough, so I had to take the big expensive boat over to Koh Rong. The waves were huge and it was pretty exciting to skim over them in our big boat. I checked into the Posted by baixing in No Fixed Address | Jan 22, 2017
  • Back to SihanoukvilleI went back again to try and find my watch, but it was still gone. I made a report to the police, but I won't ever hear anything, I'm sure. Grandma's watch is gone. Sad. All the boats were full Posted by baixing in No Fixed Address | Jan 23, 2017
  • So sickThere was a reason for all that sleeping, as you'll see later. I had breakfast in the market and then went to the doctor. While I was running around looking for my watch, I hurt my toe and wondered if Posted by baixing in No Fixed Address | Jan 24, 2017
  • Back to Phnom PenhI had to pick up my passport with the extended visa in it before Jo arrived on Saturday and I was worried I wouldn't make it to Phnom Penh in time if I left on Friday morning. So, I left Posted by baixing in No Fixed Address | Jan 25, 2017
