Well that was a bumpy journey, felt like we were travelling over fields rather than roads. Not helped by the fact I had my jerky leg syndrome., it would be great to know what brings that on it's so uncomfortable but hasn't been as bad lately.
Going through all these dusty villages on the way to Siem Reap you see it is farming land the kids playing no shoes of course, buffalo enjoying the sunshine and Cambodians. Just getting on with there lives, watching you do wonder what some of them are up to, do they really make a living, on this land. They don't get anything from the government, not even a bowl of rice. You do see make shift homes /tents built on land randomly.
Plus you get the beggars, I don't know who has got it right or wrong we give to much away in UK to our lazy rettrobates, these are willing to work like Trojans for a penance.
Arriving at the bus station I see a tuktuk with the name of my hotel on, so I jump in, didn't see the names at the bottom. Whoops we left the other guests there, not my fault. !!
Downside is hotel had me in for last night, I had booked for two so okay for tonight, but lost last nights monies.
Have now booked 3 more nights in another, first time that's happened so not to bad.
It's thriving here in Siem Reap and I don't no where to start, so much to do and see. But as I have to change hotels might just hire a bike for the day tomorrow.
At the moment sitting at the night Market having a really cheap supper cooked in front of me. Noodles with cashew nuts and prawns all for 2.25 dollars, oh yes and a freshly squeezed lemon juice with that. Everywhere is lite up still for Xmas and it's thriving.
Two hours later I arrived back at my hotel, after chatting to a 38 yr UK guy, plus a couple from Surrey joined us so really nice evening.
How can travelling ever be lonely, being in the UK on your own is lonely.
So another good day in an exciting new place that's buzzing.
