okay, i’m behind on pictures, but this is the gorgeous place we stayed at in battambang. the only way to get here is by boat or rented car or taxi, 4-6hrs give or take. so it was good to indulge, a little on the expensive side (for SE asia) but well worth the atmosphere & location. the owners had only opened this place not very long ago. a few months, it think?

heading back to siem reap to meet up with the rest of our party. just don’t every be late for the boat. we got stuck w/ the luggage department aka roof top. while it was a novelty to sit up there & get a great view, it gets bit crazy when your ass is numb & the sun is beatin’ above hard. all in all, i’ll see it as an adventure. đŸ™‚

just back tracking a little here. lets see the other night we went to check out a cambodian box office hit movie. its been sold out for months now. the only way we can get in was call our movie star connection. so N’s uncle made the call. i was a bit worried about not understanding but since its an all action movie, i figure i’ll know who the bad & good guys are. movie seats are assigned. we go in, no trailers but a lot of tv type commercials. after all that, everyone stands up, and its the national anthem. how crazy is that? karoke style anthem. the movie was a little too much. action, love story, bloody fights, etc. crazy. i actually fell asleep a few types becuz it was kinda boring. the place was also freakin’cold. we ate green mangos & kettle style popcorn. it was still fun.

today we just got back from the beach. which i’ll continue later because the lighted boats are about to start this evening w/ plenty of fireworks to follow.
