We are guests in this country

This is a part of our Cambodia forums to chat about anything Cambodia-related. This discussion forum is at the top of our site because it's usually the busiest part of the expat community chatter with random topics on just about everything, including expat life, Khmer politics, Cambodian blogs we have or have come across, or whatever else our members want to discuss. Whether you're an expatriate, tourist, Cambodian or random traveler just passing through South East Asia, you are welcome to talk about anything or start new topics yourselves.

Disappointing.
You have to stop assuming that people are tuned to forums 24/7 and will respond within the next 24 hours.
It's an interesting thread and everybody's chipping in. LTO will chip in when he feels he wants to.
You assume that I assume.
I actually checked LTO's profile to see when he had last logged in before making that post. As he had logged in at 18:25 (?from memory?) that day I reached the conclusion that he was online but declining to comment further.

I'm looking forward to reading your updates.
Bon voyage!
Well, I finally am where I am, no more traveling for a week or so. Looking back through the thread, I am not sure what I can add at this point. Everything seems to have been pretty well handled by others. Dont know enough about Che to make any comments except that he if he were still alive he'd be the tee-shirt king.

What awful crime did you commit to be sentenced to travel for so long LTO?

Born to parents who live almost exactly on the opposite side of the globe from Cambodia. Three long plane rides with 6-8 hour layovers between flights to get here ... lovely Orlando.

Harsh! Be easier to ship them to you for visits. Trying to talk my mother into it for exactly that reason.

They visited me here a few times way back when. (Had my Mom here for a visit just a couple of months after the factional fighting in 97.) But now Dad is 93 and Mom 82, so long distance travel is too difficult for them.

93 is good wicket, I like folk at that age because generally they have truly ceased to care about being politically correct, and this is as it should be - they've earned it.
