MY CAMBODIAN ADVENTURE - If you can't be smart, be lucky!

sunny 34 °C

DAY 2, SATURDAY, January 5th

Arrival (10:20 a.m. local time – 10 to midnight, Friday in Nfld) in Siem Reap, Cambodia, should have meant that I’d be met at the airport. But apparently the co-founder of the orphanage sometimes forgets. To be honest, he is wearing several hats, and I often forget who dealt last in a bridge game! I had 2 U.S. bucks, which is just the right amount for a ride into town on a motorbike with my suitcase balanced in front of my driver. I didn’t know the name of the hotel, but we rode ‘past the river’, slowing when things became familiar, and found Siem Reap Riverside Hotel –thereafter referred to as “home”. As luck would have it, someone was checking out and there was a room for me for the next 3 days. A person phoning while I was checking in was told that the last room had just been taken. Seems that January is very high season and most places are booked.

Happy greetings at my hotel (taken last year, but Kamara remembered me)
