After having seen the Indonesian disaster, and read the Phnom Penh Mail. I was reluctant to stay on the beachfront. I quickly packed my bags and checked in a Guesthouse called GST (Khmer owned). on arrival, they showed me my room, which was fully equipped (Fridge - Tv - Hot Shower and Fan) all this for the same price as in my last Guesthouse ie: 5$
So, I then decided to rent my first ever motorbike (A cute little honda Wave). She really is a good little get around bike. instead of taking tuktuks or motodups i spend less on having mine with way more independance.
Victory hill will be my next stop where ill be looking for some work. It is mainly a french Xpat community with upmarket hotels so hopefully I might come in Handy.
Finally a few days ago Iwas lucky enough to assist to a Khmer Wedding (not a 100% authentic the bride and groom were called Kylie and John) Anyhow the experience was enchanting, from the chanting boudhist monks to the dancing girls everything was fascinating.
So there you go, keep u updated as much as possible.
