Where I stayed
As the rain stopped we ventured out to eat at the restaurant that Andrew had found last night and they seemed quite surprised to see Andrew back and with a date for the evening. We tucked in to vegetable tempura and I had a ‘Golden curry’ which tasted like a Masaman curry only nicer. It was a lovely meal and really cheap too. We decided to walk in to town as it was our last night and I wanted to give the fish massage a go that seems to be really popular here. For $2.50 you get to put your feet in to a tank or paddling pool of fish and as they eat the dead skin from your soles you enjoy a relaxing can of free beer, how great. Well Andrew didn’t think so, it tickled too much. OK it did tickle, a lot, but it was strangely enjoyable nonetheless.
We walked back to the hotel through the night market and Andrew got brave so decided that we were going to have a proper massage, by a person, back at the hotel. As a massage novice I wasn’t too keen but Andrew was adamant that we wouldn’t find a cheaper massage on our trip so we had to do it, it was $6 an hour. We got back to the hotel and booked an hour full body massage each and fifteen minutes later two tiny Cambodian girls turned up at our hotel room door. We had originally planned to be in the same room so Andrew looked scared when the kindly hotel man said he had organised another room for him.
One hour later and a bit sore, this girl had pummelled me to within an inch of my life, she’d even stood on me at one point, the agony was over. I can’t say that I’m too much of a fan of Khmer massage
Andrew edit - mmmm well me and the 20 year old cambodian girl went to another room and to be honest I wasn't quite sure what we had ordered. I lay on the bed and she but her hands on my 'hips' and smiled at me for about 1 uncomfortable minute then said "who is that downstairs" I responded with "my wife now how do we start the massage". I then wondered if I had jumped to conclusions, but maybe not. All very funny in hindsight.
