Nice that the Phnom PENH POSt KEPT THE POLICE BLOTTER….under the new management.
Rain, rain and more rain here, it is quiet and only a few tourists about.. life is boring and everybody seems to start this year’s cabin fewer early, I for one do,
But as this’ is not snooky, there is nobody to fight around- at least no worthy enemies. Pity, so we read, watch dvd’s and the rain… blessed be the internet, just wish it wasn’t so very expensive here…. If and when it works, that is….
