After a good sleep a big room, we decided that we would stay another nihgt in the guest house we were in, and we obviously assumed this wouldn't be a problem considering we had told the owner we would decide this over night. However as we left our room to head off for breakfast, we were met by the owner telling us we had to check out, aparently because she had some customers who had called up and booked a room, and she had given them ours!!! Clearly unhappy, we had our first altication with her, but ended up walking off to find another guest house before we had to move our bags from the room, which was in about 30 minutes time!!!
We found a place fairly quickly, our new room was right on the lake, with a beautiful view onto it from the front porch. It was set up in a bungalow type system around walk ways over the water, after agreeing a price here we went back to the guest house we were being thrown out of to get our bags, pay and have another aguement over the amount we were to pay. I wasn't happy paying the amount we had agreed because she was throwning us out against agreement, I had also miss understood Jade, who I thought had said the women had said we could get it cheaper if we stayed longer, it actually turned out the women had said no to this request. However not only this but when we came to pay, they charged us for the toilet roll we'd asked for, and they'd conveenently forgotton to tell us cost, and they'd over charged us for the water I had got the night before. So in the ended the situation ended up with the owner and one of the workers attempting to lock me in the compound because I was refusing the pay I think it was 2 dolars, it wasn't so much the money but the principle of the whole thing. I gave in when we think they were about to call the police, my principles kind of stop when it comes down to a Cambodians word to the Cambodian police against mine!!!
Anyway we got to our new guest house, went and got some breakfast/lunch at 'Oh my Buddha' a bar/restaurant we'd been told to go to by Mike. Afterwards we got a tuk tuk down to central market, which is where we thought we'd been dropped off at by the bus, it turned out that was wrong, but the market was cool. I've had to master patience having travelled with at least one girl for the entire journey, when it comes to shopping. I've been praced by both Jade Linnea for my ablility to shop with girls, all I'm going to take from that is that patience is a vertue!!!
The market was based undr and around a large dome building with four large corridors of stalls coming out of it. It then spilled outside to the food and flower sections, along with the token Lacque stores that ever present throughout South East Asia, and that can entertain one for a few weeks, but after a few months of them, and the stuff is the basically the same in every country, it becomes tiresome.
We all picked up a few things and headed back for the guesthouse. We had put some clothes in for laundry the night before and when we got back we went to collect it. Once again for everyone else this was an easy enough affair, but I had to make scene, I thought that I missing a pair of trousers that I'd given in, having checked the pile twice I cooly asked what was going on, my inqueiries being translated by the owners daughters to her. Having said to Linnea that I was about 85% certain that the trousers were in the bag I gave them, I went back to the room to make sure. It turns out I'm a complete idiot but we all that anyway, the trousers were hidden in the bottom of my bag. I walked back to the shop with my tail between my legs and apologized profusly.
We used the internet and got dinner, with little more incident that night.
