Jean requested that I post more photos of Mike and me. Mike’s photo card isn’t compatible with my iPad, I can’t get at his photos till I am home. Some other travelers were kind enough to get a few shots of us together. So Jean, these are for you.
Mike, looking thoughtful.
I DID promise random shots, so here goes. This is the walkway leading to the “laundry” less than a block from the Tara Angkor Hotel. For $12 we got two weeks worth of dirty clothes washed and folded. You might wonder where, because all that is visible are soda cans and umbrellas, which explains why I walked by the place twice. The laundry, you see,is also a cafe. These Cambodians are hard working AND ingenious.
Lest you think the hotel is equally rustic, let me show you the elegance of this gorgeous hotel. Seven of us ladies, and Mike, sipped our gin and tonics in this locale.
The pool had a Goldilocks temperature…not too hot, not too cold–just right. So refreshing!

I tried several times to send Hal and Karen this photo via email. Maybe the post will succeed. Well, this WAS a mode of travel.
So far, we’ve had two trips on the Mighty Mekong. The first was in Laos, to the caves.
The second trip, in Cambodia, was quite an experience because the water level was so low, and the water was extremely muddy.
No, our boat went QUITE like those on the bank. THIS was our boat.
Next stop, Vietnam.
