In the tiny tiny window I had between finishing work in Jakarta and starting work in Canberra I decided to take a four day holiday to Cambodia. Yes, that is a bit of an insane thing to do in the midst of an international move, but hey, I’m insane.
My arrival in Siem Reap coincided with a city wide electricity shortage thanks to a truck running down 11 power poles that connect Siem Reap to its Thailand-based power supplier. And it was incredibly hot as well. So my Siem Reap trip was a sweaty, dark time. But I got to see the Angkor temples, my main reason for going, and still had an enjoyable (sweaty) time. I’ll try to write some blog posts about the trip now, even though it was more than a month ago.
