I arrived at the airport of Phnom Penh and went into the city by a characterstic Tuk Tuk, a moped with a trailer. Traffic in Phnom Penh is crazy, the air is bad while prices are high. Night life is quite pretty though. But I moved then to Kampot, a cosy small town in the south close to the sea. You know you’re in the south, when the moon is facing downwards. At Kampot I rented a scooter and made a tour to the secret lake and a pepper farm.
Next I moved to Kep with its awesome crab market directly at the sea. More freshness is not possible. Crabs taste like the best seafood in the world.
The open office of a money changer where bundles of money are handled openly is typical of the whole region. No violence is expected.
At a tour through the national park, I got into one of the 5 rain showers of the nearly 4 weeks I traveled. It was more refreshing than cold.
