Bike Ride

Tue 05 October 2010

The hospital and guesthouse have been encouraging me to bike to work.

I had a good grasp of the route from walking it. A Siem Reap iPhone app clarified which streets are one-way. No more excuses.

Cue the Wizard of Oz music.


The traffic is more chaotic than Boston. There's a heavy volume of cars, motorbikes, tuk-tuks, and bicycles with each going at different speeds. Some of the traffic rules seem... optional. That said, the drivers are better. They look at the other drivers, yield, and make it work. They don't stop for pedestrians in crosswalks, but they do swerve, so it averages out.

Now to get used to riding in a skirt.
