Worth waiting for

Coming to a bookstore near you in about 3 months time, especially Monument Books on Norodom Boulevard in Phnom Penh, or get it online at Amazon or from the publishers, ThingsAsian Press.

Of course it's worth waiting for, but I would say that wouldn't I. With over 60 passionate contributors and more than 125 essays, all about Cambodia, there will be something for everyone. ThingsAsian Press have already published To Myanmar With Love and To Vietnam With Love. My own To Cambodia With Love is on the way soon, as well as To North India With Love. Books on Nepal, Shanghai and Thailand are in the final stages of production as well.

I mentioned yesterday that I have a stack of photos to bring you and they include my first-ever trip to northeast Thailand, more particularly the Isaan area last November. One of the gorgeous temples I visited was Prasat Phnom Rung and this a photo of me at the beginning of the 160-metre long causeway, bordered by 67 lotus-bud-tipped boundary stones that lead to the elevated first naga bridge. The second picture above is looking back along the causeway from that bridge.
I'm standing on the 160-metre long causeway at Prasat Phnom Rung in Thailand. Wow, I look like I've been eating lots of pies during my Isaan trip as I'm half that size now.

Thanks for the sneak peeks!

I pre-ordered the book last December, but have had to cancel the order as I won't be home to receive the book when it's released. We'll be living in Siem Reap by then - any idea where I will be able to find it there? Or will there be a digital edition?
