Blind and traveling USA to Cambodia in two days!

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.

]I figured the photo of "himself and monty" that when enlarged the reflection in the sunglasses shows it is a phone selfie pretty much was conclusive proof
Conclusive proof of what? You think blind people can't take photos? Or that they are only taking photos of other people but not themselves? That's a bigoted way of thinking. Here's a link to a list of blind photographers and their photos:

And here's five seconds of a video with "conclusive proof" that blind travelers can take selfies:




It's also possible a friend of David helped lined up the photo, or that he took ten photos and a friend helped him pick the best one and delete the other nine. That's probably what I would do if I were blind.

In a nation run by swine, all pigs are upward-mobile and the rest of us are fucked until we can put our acts together: not necessarily to win, but mainly to keep from losing completely. HST

On Tue Oct 08, 2019 at 4:06 pm, trDavid posted that he was "Blind and traveling USA to Cambodia in two days!", that would make his trip to the KOW start on the 10th of October, 2019.

Coincidentally the 10th of October is also "World Sight Day (WSD) is an annual day of awareness held on the second Thursday of October, to focus global attention on blindness and vision impairment.

trDavid has posted 9 times and the thread has now reached 202 posts, a 20 response to post ratio. trDavid has done remarkably well raising the level of our collective consciousness of the sight-impaired.

National Adoption Day is November 23rd, 2019. I would not be surprised if there is a new thread by a new poster stating that he and his gay partner are travelling to the KOW in two days and that they will finally pick up the child they have adopted. I expect this thread to be posted on Thursday the 21st of November. coincidences, coincidences, coincidences, that's what tripped Seawolf up.
