Sunday night update: I'm back in Phnom Penh, caught the Mekong Express at midday from Siem Reap and it was comfortable, on-time and a much better option than Paramount. Believe me. Popped into 4Faces early this morning to say goodbye to Now and the rest of the de Vries' crew, namely Pheap, Lida, Srey Pich and Leak. Yesterday afternoon, following on from my last update, was spent with Now at Angkor including my first visit to the top level of Angkor Wat since it's been reopened to the public. I also went to see the work in progress at the Baphuon but just my luck, access to the temple is not possible at the weekend so I wasn't able to view, up close and personal, the work the restoration teams have so far accomplished. Now has lived at Angkor all her life but like most of her fellow villagers, she had never visited the Terrace of the Leper King, so we put that right. More later.
