It rained so heavily last night in Phnom Penh that I was forced to remain indoors and missed the Messenger Band in concert at Gasolina. I also managed to avoid the new Elsewhere Party. This is the monthly bash where lots of the city's expats gather together to drink, talk shite and smoke weed. Their old location closed down and now they've moved just around the corner from me. I will continue to avoid it like the plague until it moves again. Today I'll get along to the Olympic Stadium to watch the opening two matches of the new Cambodia Premier League season. I also need to interview the national coach for an article in Monday's Phnom Penh Post. He returned yesterday, with his squad, from Bangladesh, so I'll give him a day or so to gather his thoughts before sticking the microphone under his nose. And tomorrow at 4pm, it's the Em Theay fundraiser at Bophana Center, where the excellent The Tenth Dancer documentary will get an airing. I'm looking forward to that and I hope a great response from the community here to the recent losses suffered by Em Theay and her family.
