From Phnom Penh we'll head through Battambang for a few days & on to Angkor Wat. We may also head south to a beach on Gulf of Thailand. For David, Cambodia will be a journey of unfolding. His birth parents are from there & there is a lot to learn & experience. We'll see how it goes. I have no ideas whatsoever re how this will be for him - or for me, as far as that goes. Leslie & I spent 5 of the most intense years of our lives with Cambodian refugees, so there is some history with me, too.
From Cambodia we'll cruise on over to Bangkok. After that, I don't know. Burma was in the plan, but some bad action there (worse than usual), so we may spend most of the rest of our time in Thailand. No prob with that! I'm hoping to get up to a refugee camp on the Thai-Burma border to see a colleague. I know, I know, I said no talk of work & there I go, bringing it up. What can I say, it will only be for a day or two.
At the end, we will pass back through Hong Kong for 2 days - kind of a decompression stage. Then back to Dallas.
