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.

About the dogs - its a serious menace.

if you read my post and @John Bingham post - they are genuine experiences.

I have to walk my dog daily and whichever way I go is fighting.

They don't chain their dogs here and i have only ever seen one person with a lead besides me.

There is a regular customer at Lone Star Saloon in Phnom Penh who is completely blind. If you go to Lone Star and ask for him, they can put you in touch with him and maybe he can help.
He travels throughout the region on his own without too much difficulty.

Best of luck

He needs to get to know her for himself. If she says she loves him, and you say she is scamming him, who will he believe?

I hope he has a good one. There are some good girls in Cambodia. If this one doesn't work out, there are others. But is difficult to meet them in a short time.

Is there anyone willing to volunteer to meet him, and show him the ropes?

Surely not? I went once, but didn't have a camera so decided to go again a year later and was bored to tears half way around. You are trolling or are the most easily impressed/entertained man of all time.
You sound very cultured.

Go for it Dave.
The trip, the girl, taking Monty, getting out and around. All of it.
You are obviously sharp enough to surf the pavements, pot holes and pit falls.
Suggestion - the millions of square metres of carvings, engraving and reliefs covering the Angkor Wat temples would probably be an amazing experience for the tactilely talented.

Remember, a good experienced, english speaking, traditional tuk tuk driver is worth gold.
Don't heed the nay-sayers, just step out with friendliness, confidence, and curiosity.
I presume you have good intuition - that will probably get you further than a good pair of eyes in Cambodia.

Thanks. I don’t know if I will need a tuk tuk driver because her cousin is a taxi driver. He will drive her to the airport because she is afraid to come alone she says the road has thieves?

She is taking two weeks off from the shop where she works and her cousin is taking time off work too too drive us to her village and to Siem Reap. Should I offer him money for that or would it cause offense?
