Why Are You In Cambodia?

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

I'm here because I REALLY like mangos and it just seemed logical to move closer to where they're made.

its actually half true. i lived in a place with tornados, hail the size of tennis balls, snow 4 months out of the year, no beaches, not much of anything really... i wanted to live in the tropics, so I moved to them.

and I'm actually pretty anxious to move out to Svay Rieng... there's just a little bit more infrastructure that needs to happen out there before I do.

I am here because it is my home. Rather like being born in a place, I never decided to live here, never worked out any particular set of reasons for coming here or being here, but just happened be passing through and by chance happened to stay long enough to put down roots. The longer I stayed, the deeper the roots grew. Now it is home. Luckily, I also like the place - the people, the archaeology, the freedom, the sense of being present for history in the making.
