My twin room at the Raffles Grand D'AngkorArrived in Siem Reap after 7 hours on the road from Phnom Penh this morning. The road construction between Prek Pnov bridge and Batheay made it painfully slow. So much so that we had to have lunch in Kompong Thom instead of getting a free feed at a bunch of restaurants in Siem Reap. Had a problem getting my free room at Raffles Grand D'Angkor too, as I didn't bring my passport or credit card, so they couldn't verify who I am. I know who I am but they don't. A phone call got it resolved in the end. Now enjoying my lovely posh room with free internet, courtesy of Raffles management. Nice people. Off to the Hanuman party - the reason why 30 staff made the trip this morning - at 6.30pm. Should be fun, except I have to say a few words. Few being the key word. Tomorrow we have an educational trip to Beng Mealea and Koh Ker temples for the benefit of our sales team.
