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 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 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 …

February 19, Monday, 2007, Kampong Trach
Once more I have to go back in time again to catch up with my story. I had decided to leave Phnom Penh by riding my bike in a loop to the south coast and then back to Phnom Penh. I could have gone in either direction on the loop. I could have gone down National Highway 4 directly to …

Sunday, February 18, 2007 Cambodia
I’ve skipped ahead a few days because I got on the bike and started cycling. It has only been two days, but it feels like much longer. They have been difficult days in some ways, and I haven’t had the time or energy to write about them.
To get the whole story, I’m going to go back in time to where I …

February 16, Friday, 8:30 a.m.
Location: Java Cafe on Sihanouk Boulevard
Mission: Breakfast and coffee
I seem to have been on a mission the last couple of days to check out some of the more comfortable and foreigner-friendly areas. It’s been a rather pleasant surprise. There are a lot of these places and there is quite a range in their style. The Freebird Bar and Grill where I …
