Phnom Penh

CAMBODIA | Tuesday, 23 Mar 2010 | Views [260]

Left Siem Reap on the Saturday heading off for Vietnam. Stopping off at the capital for a couple of morbid days. The only 2 places of note that I visited were S-21 and the Killing fields. S-21 used to be a school that Pol Pot ordered to be converted ... Read more >

today we saw the moving in ceremony for our house. With some local help we managed to get it finished in time for our last day. The ceremony started with the village holy man blessing the house, after which a random couple moved in. Apparently it is ... Read more >

Kratie

Over the weekend I headed to Angkor Wat park, though only very briefly to Angkor Wat it self. We caught a Tuk Tuk and got driven to various temples over the two days. I think in total we got approximately 14 temple hours under our belts. There seems ... Read more >

Siem Reap Update

CAMBODIA | Wednesday, 24 Feb 2010 | Views [275]

I've uploaded some more pics of the buiding project. Apart from the building nothing much to tell - still haven't been to the temples. A few drinks and amazing food. I think the name of the village where the building is being done is called Bos

Siem Reap - First few days

CAMBODIA | Monday, 22 Feb 2010 | Views [253]

So after connecting in Singapore I flew directly to Siem Reap. Turned up a day before I needed to be here for volunteering so I checked into a random hotel in the centre of town. A guy on a tuk tuk was waiting for me at the airport so didn't have to ... Read more >
