Unexpectedly, Pip the youngest of the sons, was a bit of a DJ and tore through the quiet countryside atmosphere with a selection of English and Cambodian discoteque hits in an impromptue party until the wee small hours. Had we have not been staying in the chief's house, I think the neighbours might have complained!
It was surprising we got to sleep that evening surrounded by the stupidly loud croaks of frogs, crickets, birds and howling dogs - not to mention the coughing and mooing of the cows housed underneath us. 7 hours and half a dozen mozzie bites later we said goodbye to the family and set off for the 5 hour journey to Sihanoukville and the coast.
Everyone was looking forward to the next few days R&R on the beach was a little dissapointed to note that it was raining buckets for the whole of the 5 hour journey and contined to do so when we got to out coastal destination. Mind you, that is to be expected when you travel in the rainy season, though it does mean any chance of a tan are out the window. We have three days here on the coast before we travel back to the capital Phnom Penh.
