2013 - OCEANIA - CAMBODIA SCHOOL TIME

But no - School is in session, or they just filled it up for us.

Kids must have loved us.

Bringing them into school on a Sunday..

Doesn't come much more basic than this. Could be my mums classroom.

The Head teacher I think

That was good fun. Not just for tourists.

Off to the beach now.. Passing through the countryside

and some entertainment at reception...

onto the beach..

with the dragons tail at the other end of the resort. Pity about the girl getting in the way, but what can you do!.

large_P1040464.jpgP1040468.jpg

a bite to eat & a nice view of the beach....

large_P1040470.jpg

Oops!

I mean, a nice view of the beach & the dragons tail without distractions..

a beachside massage if you feel like it..

large_P1040484.jpgP1040488.jpg

or a relax in a bungalow on the lagoon..

or a swim?

& real life on the outskirts of the resort.

large_P1040500.jpgP1040501.jpg

enough laying about. Time to shop....

P1040506.jpglarge_P1040515.jpg

On to the market. Did not stay long as it was like an inferno..

Waiting for the bus I noticed some food but declined.. Song birds, what might be crickets, beetles & grubs at the end.

Finally - something scary.

& those ladies with stuff on their heads

A wonderful day out...and a couple of random people on board, supposedly listening to some violin playing but having a nap really.

I wasn't too sure about visiting Cambodia.

It gets some terrible reviews on-line. But I would go back.

People seem quite nice & they can use the tourist cash.

Has a terrible history with lots of bloodshed what with the Vietnam war overlapping Cambodia & the Khmer Rouge & Pol Pots genocide.

Hard to recover from all that.

Talking of Vietnam - tomorrows Wednesday so we must be in Vietnam.
