Hi, two days ago i had just made a new page - with fotos, send!: server went. then, my manager called, one of our guests was losing it, claimed to be the reincarnation of jezus... (eighter drugs or more likely too much of the wrong anti malarials. ) then i had to repair to Phnom Penh for shoping for the new guesthouse. so now i sit in an internetcafe. got most of what was needed, not easy; you have to go to the big city for things like; toilet seats (if you do not know where in pp it will take you the better part of a day stumbling aroud like alost soul to find just that one back street that is the only place that is the cambodian 'ceter of western toiletseats),cotton for bedding
, matching towels, well matching.. first i thought it was lazyness or somesuch, took me years to learn that khmers really can't distinguish one red from the other, even terracotta, orange, pink, purple (well sometimes it counts as blue) and anything in between is just ' red' or doi kenia' same same. so i had to check 100 towels for exact matches: with other towels that belonged to the same batch,or should belong,
also i got a memory stick to send you the gekkos. Am dead on my feet, forgot to bring my camera, just as well, third world shopping takes all of one's concentration. of course as sooon as i decided to hit my hotel, i met scores of friends whom i hadn't seen in a while, so the night time festivites were pretty strong going. wanted to go back sometime today, but i need three army surplus parachutes. Need them... so i will have to go to the military market, but my friends do not allow me to go there unless accompanied by a resposible adult macho, (now there is an oxymoron for you). so the waiting is for my friend declan, he is the only one who can possibly know how to go about buying second hand parachutes.
As much as i like it here i' m getting homesick already. strange thing, we all have it, we get here,we are ovejoyed, and then all of a sudden we go: not a minute longer!...
that is the stage i'm now,fat chance..of getting away today.
will repair to the fcc for the time beeing, declan is ALWAYS late, might as well enjoy myself..
take care tanja
