The road to Siem Reap

Today we took a bus from Bangkok to Siem Reap, Cambodia. Journey took about 10 hours, with about two hours for immigration and breaks. We entered at Poipet, which is apparently the last border to close after the Khmer Roughe took over–if you were going to get out, that was the place for it. I think it should be renamed “Poi-pit” or, rhythmically, “Toilet”. Dusty, hot, muggy, with piles of garbage and a road pockmarked with potholes the size of small ponds. Lots of kids working. The road to SR is pretty bumpy, so is difficult to take pictures. And the internet connection here in SR is pretty spotty, so my description will have to stay short for now.
