I'm just back after a couple of days in Kompong Thom and tomorrow morning I'm off again, this time to Siem Reap for a couple of nights for business. It will give me a good excuse to meet up with some friends I haven't seen for quite a few months, and others that I have, including happy snapper Eric de Vries, who recently swapped his Phnom Penh flat for a luxury villa with swimming pool in Siem Reap. However, I want to be back for Thursday as Cambodia play their next footy match against the Philippines that afternoon (4pm) and the following night, Friday, is the eagerly-awaited premiere of Tiara Delgado's film, Bitter Mekong, at Meta House. Also coming up soon, Saturday 25th to be precise, is the opening of a month-long exhibition of photographs called SMILE, by kids from the Centre for Children's Happiness, a home for disadvantaged children, at Gasolina on Street 57 (BKK1). Two events well worth a look I think.
