  • 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
  • Bamboo bridgeWhen I woke up and completely emptied the contents of my entire digestive system, I booked it out of there as fast as I could. The lazy receptionist was sleeping when I got downstairs, so I patiently waited for him Posted by baixing in No Fixed Address | Jan 1, 2017
  • Irrawaddy dolphin spottingI woke up super early so that my bike ride wouldn't be so hot, slipped a note under Mike's door, with my sincere apologies, collected my bike and pedalled off into the sunrise. I arrived just in time to meet Posted by baixing in No Fixed Address | Jan 3, 2017
  • First encounter with a probable sex touristI woke up with the sun, finally fully rested and took my bike out to Phnom Pros and Phnom Srei (Man and Woman Hill), where there was a bunch of monkeys and two temples. My plan was to eat breakfast Posted by baixing in No Fixed Address | Jan 2, 2017
  • Homestay on the MekongI deposited my laundry at the laundromat, 3 kg for $3, but it would take 24 hours. I went back to the Xplore Asia office and asked if there was another person coming on the tour today. He said no, Posted by baixing in No Fixed Address | Jan 4, 2017
