I was interested to know the spread of time spent in Cambodia by forum members.

Been here since 99.
I learn one new Khmer word every year so now I can order a beer, ask you your age and if you have any sisters. That's more than enough for me.

You need to add at least one more 5 year increment.

Hmm, not sure if one can edit polls, otherwise I'd comply.

Actually when I arrived here I promised myself I would leave within 5 years as I didn't want to end up like my mates. They were on a downward spiral and they came here with UNTAC and somehow stayed on. Unfortunately most of them are dead now, or moved on and died, and if I hadn't cleaned my act up a few years ago, I think I would have joined them.

I moved here in 2003. Not intending to go back to France or move to anywhere. Here to stay and live to see Cambodia's change of leadership.

In one sense I'm glad my almost decade long living relationship with Asia came to a forced end due to financial irresponsibility, otherwise I'd almost certainly have joined many at the end of the line.

Tis a lesson well learned and I look forward to returning with a much better understanding of my weaknesses and how the region can entice them out to play very easily. Never have I understood the term moderation more than I do now.
