To Cambodia.

Well, Happy Thanksgiving everyone. We may have found a way out. Instead of turkey and stuffing, I may be eating amok and samlor in Siem Reap. We are potentially going to have to travel overland to Cambodia, and then fly out of there. Bonus! We thought we were done with long bus trips, but we'll be travelling all day tomorrow. Bonus! We have to deal with the nasty Cambodian border crossing, where everybody wants a bribe. Bonus! We are only waitlisted for a flights once we get to Seoul, so we may have to spend a night.

Thanks, PAD.

What an adventure. Hey why *not* make a bunch of border guards very thankful this turkey day (something tells me you aren't the only ones with this idea). Good luck!

Good luck! My parents were lucky enough to be one of the last flights out of the country (pure luck) after a trip to Thailand this month. So, I wanted to check in to see how you are. Good luck and I'm still trying to get the New Mexico book out...haven't forgotten about you!

Good luck with that journey...hope it has improved since I did it on the back of a pick-up truck in 2000...I think it counts as the most overland road journey ever...
