As I mentioned in my last post, I had no clear vision for what I would do in South East Asia – or even what the major ‘tourist attractions’ were within each of the countries. I knew Vietnam for its war, Cambodia from a Dead Kennedys song, and Thailand for its world-famous ladyboys. Today? I could tell you the best place to get a Vietnamese visa in under two hours, recommend coffee shops in Phnom Penh, and have seen enough breast implant scars on ladyboys to last a lifetime.
After 2.5 weeks in Cambodia, I’m packing up and heading west to Thailand.
In addition to my ‘fancy’ camera, I find myself using my iPhone to take many spontaneous pictures throughout my travels. The following is a collection of pictures and accompanying stories about Cambodia – seen through the lens of my iPhone.
This post could alternatively be named “Indiana Jones and the temple of sunburn, sweat, and sales-children.”
As I write this I’m back in Sihanoukville, land of beaches, beer, and tuk-tuk drivers disguised as vultures (or perhaps it’s the other way around).
I’ve been on Koh Rong for, I think, three days now. The island is amazing. There are supposed to be 20 beaches on the island and I’ve seen 3 of them. I could seriously stay here for the next month just to see the rest of them.
I have a confession to make. If you know me well this won’t be a surprise. I can’t sit still very well.
