Off to Cambodia!!!

Well my excursion into South East Asia is finally here...I'm nervous, excited and well mostly excited. I'm leaving on January 24th and getting back to Taipei on January 31st....I've been so busy lately this will be a good break for me.

I don't really know what to expect in Cambodia, but from talking to other people it will be an amazing and eye-opening experience. I'm flying in and out of the capital Phomn Phen and gonna try and spend most of my time in Siem Reap and Ankor Watt exploring the amazing temples in that area. I hear if I'm very cheap I can survive on 10 US dollars a day, but maybe I'll yearn for the finer comforts liek hot water....so that might raise my cost to 20 US dollars a day, which for 7 days, really won't be that bad. I think the cab to and from the airport will be more than my hotels in Cambodia for the week. I heard internet is spotty there (among other things) So I'll be sure to update if I can find a connection....

It will be interesting to see a part of the world that maybe most people do not get to see and will be a harrowing, eye-opening experience for sure. I just hope I don't get sick ...
SO EXCITED FOR CAMBODIA!!!

Happy Chinese New Year !!!!! (It's the year of the Ox here, not sure what that means but has a nicer ring to it than 2009)


See you when I get back.....

Brian,

My niece spent a year in Cambodia working for an English-language newspaper there. (Shye's in the U.S. now.) If you want to get contact info for her, let me know.

Great to hear from your recent guest about all the great things you're doing!
