Hey, I'm not trying to derail the thread but are you really in Phnom Penh? I was there in 1997 and went out to Siem Reap and visited Ankgor Wat. Amazing country and people. Tulong Song was tough as hell but had to go. Felt obligated and man was it an eye opener. Some folks have not a clue. To hear the stories from our tour guides makes me shudder thinking about it. And the juxtaposition of the past with driving out to the airport to fly to Siem Reap at 4:00 a.m. and looking out the bus window to see a silverbacked baboon riding on the trunk of a Mercedes like he belonged there, with the wind whipping through his fur and him all non-chalant like what are you looking at? Crazy but I'd love to go back and I still stay in touch with our tour guide from Ankgor, Maray Seng. He raised crocodiles for export, taught English and was a hired tour guide for the temples of Ankgor. Amazing place.
