Ah, back in the comfort of my own home. It's been a nice break, especially as Tim is over here from England and we always have a good laugh when we get together, but my week-long trip to the south coast of Cambodia has been spoiled by my skin and eye infection. I need to get it sorted quickly as it's really getting me down. I honestly look like I've just gone ten rounds with Cassius Clay (that shows how old I am!), the bags under my eyes are big enough to hold a weeks' shopping and the skin on my arms is not a pretty sight. I caught the Paramount Express bus back from Sihanoukville at 7.45am this moning ($7) and was back in my apartment at 12.30pm. Tim has stayed on in S'ville to do a couple of days of underwater diving off the island of Koh Tang - he's an experienced diver and thought it was too good an opportunity to pass up. I'm off to see the doctor again this evening to seek some stronger medication as the stuff I'm on right now isn't doing the business. I'm just downloading my photos from the trip, all 650 of them and will post a few soon just to give you a flavour of the last 7 days.
