On the Road Again

Fri 16 September 2011

Back to Siem Reap for a month. I'm in pretty good shape for 26 hours of travel and an 11 hour time zone shift.

I couldn't follow Daniel Pink's recommendations for jet lag. The darkened cabin on the trans-Pacific flight was too soporific to resist. I was more successful when I shotgunned movies on the Seoul to Siem Reap leg.

I heard several familiar sounds while I sat on the Bloom Garden Guesthouse balcony this morning:

  • the George Jetson spaceship putt-putt-putt of tuk-tuks
  • the honka-honka rubbish collector
  • two kinds of ice cream vendors: the tinny recorded jingle from the Nestle moto, and the mild, old fashioned ding-ding-ding-ding of the pushcart bell
  • monks, way off in the distance
  • the rooster next door

It's good to be back.
