Mum's the word

Keep it to yourself (I'm crap at keeping secrets), but a regular author on Cambodia, he's published four books to-date that I'm aware of, his first in 1992, is on the cusp of releasing another publication any day now. It'll only be available in Cambodia and at very selective venues, so when I get a copy in my grubby little hands (they aren't that grubby, or little for that matter) I'll spill the beans, as it'll definitely be worth getting a copy. Don't you just love a bit of intrigue?

I just saw this photo and it always makes me smile. Photos like this have a great knack of taking you back in time. I'd been on the back of a moto for hours coming back to Siem Reap after another one of my long distance adventures and needed a rest stop. As soon as I got off the moto, this bunch of kids appeared, eyeing the ice-lolly salesman standing at the edge of the road. I gave in immediately and bought each of them a lolly. Absolutely adorable kids and great memories. I'm lucky to have cupboards full of such memories.

Dear Andy, in one of your blogs you recommended a friend, who works as a guide (and drives carefully !) in Batambang. Unfortunatly I don't find this blog-entry anymore.
Please let me know, where I can find it.
Kind regards
