It’s history day. We’re reading Cambodian history. There’s been trouble for hundreds of years. Hopefully brighter times ahead. It’s Day 51, Wednesday 13th July 2011. I am moved by the sweet people that we meet here.
We check out of the hotel in Sihanoukville and for three hours our taxi avoids dogs, cows, and other taxis coming the other way. Evidently it’s customary here for taxis to drive on any side of the road that is expedient at the time. So the TMD (taxis of mass destruction) are more worrying than the bovine threat.
We stared out from the hotel as we waited for our taxi. The pool, the palms, and the ocean.
