    Phnom Penh attractions... Side trip with the old man..

    My Dad was in need of a visa run so he booked some flights online to Hong Kong... Unfortunately he bollocksed up the booking putting his own name on both tickets... Due to the fact that China Airlines required us to go to some office in bangkok in order to correct the tickets and the fact that Hong Kong for a few days would have cost a small fortune I managed to persuade the old man to forget about Hong Kong and sorted us out a few days in Pnom Penh instead..

    Arrived at the airport, got to the front of the visa queue, collected luggage then sorted out a $7 taxi ride down to our guesthouse on Street 104...

    The 'Tonle Sap Guesthouse' is part of and sits above the 'Pickled Parrot' bar, which is an Ozzy owned expat orientated bar with a decent food menu... No hostesses in this bar but there are about 6 or 7 hostess bars within a stones throw on this small street... Perfect, as the old man never sleeps and could easliy find some nearby entertainment during those many times when he tries to shake me off.... The manager of the bar was quite helpful for information and he rented us a couple of local sim cards for about $5 each.

    I had been to Pnom Penh a couple of times before and this time I decided to try and do some of the touristy stuff that I never managed to fit in before...


    Top of the list, as depressing as it was going to be, was the genocide museum.. It's a former high school that was used as a prison and place of mass murder by the Kmer Rouge in the 70's.... An estimated 17000 people (including children) were imprisoned here over the space of 4 years and there were only 12 known survivors... It's not a good place to walk around but it should never be forgotten...

    Here is the wikipedia link if you want to know more... Genocide Museum

    The grounds..



    I felt a definite chill go through me as I walked into that first room...





    You get swamped by beggars at the entrance/exit... One guys face was a mess and whether he had been a land-mine victim or survived a bad fire I don't know but it really was a sobering sight to see some of these people...

    We were both a bit down and thoughtful after the experience, then as our tuk-tuk was waiting at some junction a minibus came up alongside us... Then these kids started hanging out the window, giving us 'high fives' and laughing their heads off at us... They were brilliant and certainly cheered us up a bit...

    I don't know what the cheeky one on the left is laughing about but it doesn't look that complimentary..



    Other places visited included the National Museum... Not that great but a nice building and kills an hour between eating and drinking on the riverfront...






    The old man didn't want to pay the $1 entrance to this Wat seeing as it was only for foreigners but I treated him to the entrance fee..





    There were supposedly meant to be loads of cheeky monkeys hang around there but we didn't see any so was a bit dissapointed on that count... There was a reward on offer in the paper to catch 3 big monkeys that lived near the temple and had formed an outlaw gang... They had been jumping from building to building robbing whatever they could and throwing stones at anybody that got in their way... They had to be caught alive though - couldn't just shoot them off the rooftops... Probably wanted them to stand trial or something...


    And here is a girl that I could see from my balcony.... I did some improvised sign language with her and arranged to meet her in the bar below where she was sat later on.... Turns out she was actually deaf and she was very sweet....
    I didn't attempt to take her home as I was far too drunk that night and she was far too nice...


    Took some rough old thing from the Rose Bar instead...

    That should be sufficently countermanded by the dirty-perverts-living-vicariously-through-your-trip brigade

    ^ I was very drunk at the time.... Actually she wasn't that old I think... Had big norks...

    Will sort out the photo and post here... Fully clothed photos though so you can't really see the size of her norks...

    This may come as a bit of a shock to you, probably best you sit down before reading this any further.








    They say "Hello sexy Man" to everyone, even me

    Hell, I have even heard rumours that they say it to buriramboy, although it has been said that they were shouting out to the geriatric old gentlemen behind him

    Noodles was in the Rose bar with me and a mate and got undressed and started dancing in just his scants on the bar.

    I shit ye not.

    I'm pretty sure I ended up with the one with the big norks as in your photo. Recollection is hazy.

    I recognise the rusty fridges.

    ^ Never been to Vietnam but it's more boring than Thailand I would say....

    I have done a cultural thread about the local attractions and it's ended up as a mongering thread... I don't know...
