Introduce Yourself

This is a part of our Cambodia forums to chat about anything, whether it relates to Cambodia or not. 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.

StroppyChops,
thanx for your post and I hope that EdinWigan has answered your question (but I DO look very similar to him. That's why I have chosen that picture.)

General Mackevili,
thanx a lot for your welcoming message. Looking forward to see the board growing.
Und der Haifisch der hat Tränen
Und die laufen vom Gesicht
Doch der Haifisch lebt im Wasser
So die Tränen sieht man nicht

In der Tiefe ist es einsam
Und so manche Träne fliesst
Und so kommt es dass das Wasser
In den Meeren salzig ist

I made the connection, and was gently digging to discover if you are THAT Francis! Nice subtle humour there, Ed, nice one!

Howdy

I'm an American, moving to PP in two weeks to hopefully attend RUPP for a Masters in Economic Development and set up a social enterprise. Will also be volunteering at an English teaching school that I previously taught at in 2011/2012. Excited to move back and to maybe meet some of you all.

I like to play football (soccer), read non-fiction books about history and geo-politics, eat Indian food, and drink tequila. If you have any daughters who are lawyers, doctors, or scientists let me know :OD:

Welcome to CEO!

Sounds like you will have a lot of questions about lining in Cambodia soon. We have an "Ask the Expats" section where you can ask us any questions you may half. :good:

Have fun!
