What's up with Kampot ? Is it next in line ?

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.

Nah mate I'm not drunk but you do rather look a little keen.

If not drunk then a short memory - I have posted shitloads of posts in this 60+ pages of posts. Where do you have an issue with food or weather in the Kampot thread if the photos are relevant?
Please elucidate, your post is a little unclear to me.
I am aware you are the photo guy for Kampot however, that was quite a prolonged and sustained posting session.
Just wondered wtf inspired such zealotry?

Simple answer really .... had a pile of photos transferred to my pc and I am building a big house in Kampot which is keeping me from moseying around the countryside and then I had an issue uploading via Imgur that took about a week for the admins to fix so with an hour to spare I sent up a few.

No doors save space and energy.
Cambodia,,,, Don't fall in love with her.
Like the spoilt child she is, she will not be happy till she destroys herself from within and breaks your heart.

Thanks for your photos. These give some of us who cannot travel much a look at other places and what is going on.

Remember the refurbished grand hotel on Bokor? Where the cheapest rooms were listed at $400+ ?

About 7 months later it is neglected, empty and on it's way back to disarray

Also a skeleton staff with about 2 front office and 2 in the dining room. The 2/3 security at the front and 2 at the rear to keep you off the grass have gone

All the plantings at the rear have died, the paving is cracking and sinking, the lawns and flowerbeds overgrown

Maybe Mr CEO should hire it and hold a CEO party. We could all just book in by our CEO names and have a getting to know you all weekend.

Nah......Nah.... nah. Would spoil the illusion everyone has of some members and we might even like them. =@
