My Driver in Cambodia

    Newer Older

    This was my driver in Siem Reap, Cambodia. He's a heck of a nice guy. We had a growing retinue as the weekend wore on, and he was always there to help out! First it started out with just my guide, Ratanak (who recently set up his own Cambodia Tour Guide site here - I recommend him!), and then we added one monk and then another. By the end, we had five us piled into his car and we were having a great time.

    He was there every morning at 4:30 AM to pick me up for first light and there every night until sunset. We kind of bonded because of the one-eye thing... (I also only see from one eye). I asked about it and he said it happened when he was a young boy. It's been gradual, but he has gotten used to it; He seemed to be at as much ease as the monks in the backseat with me.

    Below are a few of the places he took me... thanks again mate!
