The train arrived "suddenly", or as Tommy Cooper used to say "Just like that".

Read this as meaning the tuk tuk driver was half asleep or stoned.

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.

I am really surprised
Spoiler:
that it took so long for this to happpen
It is going to get much worse once the faster trains arrive from Mexico, currently the journey takes appx. 45 mins, but will only take 20 mins with the new trains.
