Back to Phnom Penh

View Living in Guangdong on baixing's travel map.

I literally spent the whole day on the bus. My ticket said the bus would pick me up at seven, but of course, it didn't come until eight. I bought a lot of pastries at the market while waiting, and snacked on them all day.

I had a couple of outbursts on people who don't understand a toilet line. They sure do understand lines when someone is standing at the door enforcing them though! At the second washroom we stopped at, the efficiency was amazing. Everyone fell right into line because the cleaning woman was keeping track of who was butting in. At the first toilet, no such authority figure was there, guess who waited about 20 minutes for a toilet at that one. I only got to pee after I literally elbowed someone who tried to cut in front of me out of the way. What utter inconsiderate nonsense.

When we finally arrived in Phnom Penh, we were near the train station. I tried to buy a ticket to Sihanoukville, but the train wasn't leaving until Friday. I put that info in my back pocket for the trip back. I might come back that way next week.

With the train idea obliterated, I went to find a different bus company to get to Koh Kong, but my favourite one didn't go there, nor did the ticket woman help me out with even the name of another company who might go there. Not my favourite bus company anymore, Phnom Penh Sorya! I went back to the bus I got there with once again, and reluctantly bought a ticket leaving in the morning.

88 Backpackers was not so far from there, so I got a bed in the quiet room and went to the market for noodle soup and a jackfruit shake for dessert. Beers were also enjoyed on the common balcony before bed.IMG_1558.jpg
