Good old Cambodia

21 Dec

Warm Welcome - more than I could handle

I had booked a week in Cambodia to go back in time and re-live good old memories, meeting up with great friends, visiting the familiar places and soak up on the same smile-provoking surreal experiences as before (e.g. drag shows, temple visits, funny food, etc).

So I started feeling home-sick or lonely before PH had even gone. What’s the point of being alone, when I’ve got all these nice friends? Why on Earth did I leave them?
