Cambodia 016 – Return to Taipei

I’m at the airport way too early as always. I suppose I could have organized my day a little better and gone out for a cup of coffee in the city this morning at least, but when that time came I actually fell back to sleep thanks to those blackout curtains in my room. I still had enough time to get a coffee, but that would have meant getting to the airport at the normal time instead of at Doug’s patented “let’s reduce the stress as much as possible” time.

March 6, Tuesday, 2007
A complete and utter change of scene. I’m back in Phnom Penh and of course the first thing I did, after getting a place to stay, is go down to the riverside and look for a pizza. I’m just waiting for it to come to my table and am enjoying a Beerlao.
I don’t know about this whole taking a bus business. Well, …

March 5, Monday, 2007, Siem Reap, Cambodia
It’s seven a.m. here and I rode my bike back to the coffee shop at the gas station. It was actually a bit of a ride, and now I’m a little sweaty. But that’s okay. I like the coffee and the atmosphere. Plus, it was too early for the places in my new neighborhood. None of them were open …

March 2, Friday, 2007, Siem Reap, Cambodia
It’s 8 o’clock in the morning, and I’m back at the little coffee shop at the gas station. I hope the journal mood hasn’t left. I sat down with my first cappuccino and then I saw Michael ordering a coffee. He came over and joined me and we talked for a while. He just went back to their guest …

March 1, Thursday 2007, Siem Reap
Here I am in Siem Reap with one of the greatest temples of the word just a few kilometers away and where do I end up? At a gas station coffee shop, of course. I’m sure Angkor Wat will be big and impressive and all that, but I’ll bet it won’t give me as much pleasure as this cup of …

February 25, Sunday, 2007 7:44 a.m. Sihanouk, Cambodia
My plan for the day is to ride my bike up along the coast and see what there is to see. There might be nothing. There might be a fishing village or two. I’ve also read that there are some old navy ships up there rusting away. If I can get close to them, they might make some …

February 22, Thursday, 2007 7:41 a.m. Kampot, Cambodia
Apparently, someone very important died in Kampot recently. There has been a funeral ceremony going on up the street ever since I arrived. The Internet café is right across the street from the ceremony and the noise has been deafening.
I’m feeling much, much, much, better than yesterday, but that’s because I simply haven’t eaten. If you don’t add …

February 20, Monday, 2007 Krong Kep Cambodia
I’ve had some trouble finding a convenient and comfortable place to write the last couple of days. Or I’ve just been too sweaty and sunburned and tired. Let’s see how this place goes.
I’m in a little seaside town called Kep. I came here without much of an idea of what the place would be like and it has been …
