Destitute Aussie in Siem Reap???

Post by hanno » Fri Sep 11, 2015 3:28 pm

So there I was, sitting at Charlie's, having a few cold ones and watching one of the heaviest downpours I have seen in Cambodia when this skinny, barefoot, and completely soaked Aussie slunk in.

He made me and started telling me of how he lost his money and he was going to get funds next week. I wanted my peace and quiet and gave him a tenner but now I am wondering if anyone knows who this dude is. I certainly haven't seen him before....

I've had a couple of Aussie beggars hit me up in the Reap recently; they're shit out of luck when it comes to funds though - I'd rather help a down on their luck local than some idiot who couldn't manage to keep a passport and plane ticket handy.

Australia is sending refugees and beggars to Cambodia, I see. Very kind of them.

I think we still have fund from the refugee deal, perhaps our government will use it to settle down those destitute Aussie. :ROFL2: :ROFL:

You're kidding Samouth - I'm afraid the money is already spent. :D
But maybe the Cambodians could exchange him for a Rohingya ? (Probably eats less and definitely drinks less. )

@JSP Good luck with that. :beer:

Right, it is really likely that the money is already spent. :( Sorry to the poor Aussie guys.
