Is that safe? Should you be there?

Follow me on this part of my adventure where I have conversations with Cambodia Police officers, take pictures with grumpy kids because they want money from me, and I tell them that they should go to school instead of begging for money, meet a family that says I am a reincarnated monkey from a previous life, which in turn they gift me some items from their store, try and have a flock of children sell me postcards, or 5 for that matter, for a dollar, and tour orphanages to see first hand the challenges that those less fortunate experience.

To the Bay of Dragons!

Caves are stunning creations. Rock formations are spectacular.  Rock formations in the middle of bodies of water can be even more stunning.  This is Halong Bay, also called the “descending dragon bay”.  Halong Bay is a series of 1969 islands surrounded by over 1500 square kilometers of water.  Its huge.  No, its enormous! covered in islands, caves, holes, nooks and crannies everywhere.  Because of its sheer size and beauty it is a very popular tourist attraction and has been commercialized quite a bit, so be advised if you do come see it, there will be lots of people to see it, whether at the low season or the high season.

From Temples to Tigers

Cambodia is behind me, here comes Thailand!  Cambodia is a beautiful country – I still have a lot to see in the country, I did not have enough time to really see it all.  I spent my time only in and around Siem Reap, Phnom Penh, the capitol, was left, plus all around the rest of the country – I have a reason to return! Off to Bangkok, Thailand for a couple days! A vibrant and lively city known as being glorious as if created by angels, the administration center, beautiful temples and glittering palaces, the capitol of Thailand.  It is definitley the city of smiles as well!  Anywhere you
