Rivers & Roads
Kampot (my favorite)
It’s small, on the river, relatively quiet, has cute little buildings… I love it. Inspired by the Head & the Heart ::
I was swimming off of this dock, and I didn’t realize it (b/c there were other people there when I arrived), but it was actually a private dock for the employees of a guesthouse there. I didn’t know! So a lady who worked there told me this and asked me to leave. I apologized and got out of the water to leave. As I’m getting dressed, this angry Frenchman comes over, “Excuse me! What are you doing here?! This is my property!” Me: “I’m leaving, I didn’t know.” Frenchie: “Oh, you didn’t know?? There is a sign! It says ‘staff only’! This is my guesthouse!” Me: “I didn’t see the sign, it was an honest mistake. I’ll never stay here b/c you’re a jerk, so I don’t really care.” Frenchie: “Oh, you didn’t see it? Here, look at it!” Me (walking past him): “I don’t need to see any sign. I’m leaving. You’re a jerk.” Frenchie (trying to get of front of me to make me stop and look at the sign): “OH, I’m a jerk?! This is my property! You can’t be here!” Me: “Okay, bye dick.” (and I drove away on my bicycle😆).
I mean, seriously. But, for all of this time traveling, it’s a pretty good record that I got by this long without having a run-in with someone like him already! His place is called the Greenhouse. Please never stay there when you are visiting Kampot, Cambodia😂.
It costs $1/day to rent a bicycle. I had such a fun ride to the countryside! 5 miles each way = my butt is sore today:) My bike ride ::
Other stuff ::
There is a durian obsession here.
Kampot @ night.
Next up: Beach (Gulf of Thailand), and I have a special, non-traditional Christmas planned😄
