So let us continue this time telling the story of Kam Pot.
We arrived in Kam Pot at around 6pm, after a 5 hour bus journey, this time there was know near mishaps or sleeping in the aisle just a normal steady bus ride. As soon as we arrived we went in search of a guesthouse called Kam Pot, we never made it there as we fell in love with a hostel called The Magic Sponge, it had a penthouse dorm and a mini crazy golf course. How could we not fall in love with this as it was only $3 a night!!
That night we met Melvin, a dutch guy who also stayed with us in Phnom Penh at 19 Happy Guesthouse. We decided to go out and sample a few of the local beers, only to find that the town was pretty much a dead town after 9pm. For the first time in around 7 weeks we decided to have an early one as we had to be up early for a tour the next day.
The next day's tour, saw four of us, me, Earl, Tim from Oxford and Steffi from Germnay crammed in a little car named the little beast. Our first stop was the salt fields where we saw how cambodian farers make there salt, this was infact more interesting than I thought it may be. The next stop was a fishing village, then after this we went scaling around the white elephant caves and bat caves. Tim actually got shat on by a bat, unfortunately it never left a mark for a good picture. Our next stop was a cheeky stop off for a glass of sugar cane juice, I'm sure my dentist will thank me for that drink! Next up was the pepper farm, as Kam Pot is very famous for it's pepper, here we tried some the famous pepper and saw how the produced this. After this we went on to Rabbit Island, for me we had way to long here - 4 hours, all you could do was eat, sun bathe or go in the sea, which was way to warm and pretty filthy to be honest. We decided to just chill out, have a stroll around and got to know Tim and Steffi a little better. We then stopped off in Kep to try and buy ice cream which didn't materalise and then our next stop was our guest house.
We got back just in time for me to get changed and go down to the Rusty Keyhole to watch the Man Utd v Everton game. It is also at the Rusty Keyhole that Earl wanted to try and attempt the 1.5kg ribs challenge! If you completed the challenge you either got a free desert or free pint. It was quite a lot of money to do this and was only preperaed to give it a go on the condition that i got my meal paid for if I did it, unfortunately this was not the case. Only two other people had tried the challenge both completing this. Unfortunately though EArl wasn't able to make it a third, but did a stirling effort getting through a good eight tenths of the plate. I am glad I have had this to talk about instead the Man Utd game which disapointed me greatly especially after being in such a good position with 7 minutes to go. Fortunately my mood picked up a bit watching the Liverpool game and seeing them lose to West Brom.
After a few more beers and exchanging contact information with tim as he is going to be in Oz when I am, we decided to call it a ight as we had a 9am bus to Sihaunt Ville the next day
