When people told us that Phnom Penh gets really hot in March and April, I thought, “So what, its always hot in Cambodia?”. But now we understand what they were talking about. Its May, and the rains are starting to return to the city – washing away 5 months of thick red dust and soot […]
57 Seconds: Singapore from Asha and Ryan on Vimeo.
We decided to get out of tour and do a bicycle tour of some of the islands along the Mekong river near Phnom Penh. I’d almost forgotten we had done something very similar almost a year ago – cycling from island to island along the Mekong in Si Phan Don (4000 islands) in Laos. We’ve […]
