Our little tourist group expanded on the bus ride to a young British couple (Dani and Tom), a woman from Portland (Megan) and a SCUBA divemaster most recently living in Honduras (Garth). The day we arrived we walked around the Victory Hill area of town, where we were staying, and visited the closest beach, Victory Beach. Then we headed to another beach for some barbecued seafood and some belated birthday cocktails. I certainly didn't have a hard time finding people to help me celebrate my birthday.
The next couple of days consisted of reading, lounging, sunscreen, fruit shakes and freshly grilled squid and lobster lunches. Not exciting material for the blog but very relaxing. We also checked out all 4 of the beaches in town, the market, even the local expat rock band.
Yesterday Megan and I (everyone else had left) took a tour to Ream National Park for a boat trip through a mangrove forest and a hike to a secluded beach. It wasn't very exciting but it was nice to see Cambodia's conservation efforts.
