Re: what wildlife are you seeing?

Last week I switched on the pump to get some water out of the well when a small snakehead reached for my hand. I am not particularly scared of snakes, but I don't want them in the house. Since I am not skilled enough to catch 'm alive and these tend to return to their comfortable place to stay I kil...

Re: English Teaching Job in PP

We'll both be working. Out of the expenses you listed I anticipate electricity being the highest with my job providing insurance and food / transport being relatively cheap from what I've researched. Insurance? What kind? Medivac? Local care? Local food is relatively cheap, but certainly on the ris...

Condolences. What a nightmare for the family. Cambodia is no place to get sick for anyone, and, no reflection on this present case, but older expats need to have good health insurance which includes medi-vac, or else be prepared to end their days in Cambodia.
