I made it through Cambodia safe and sound. After braving the mine fields in Anlong Veng and visiting Pol Pot’s remote jungle hide-out I finally crossed into Thailand and hightailed it to Bangkok. I needed to come back here a bit early because there maybe a small issure with my Korean work visa so I will be making a visit to the Korean embassy in the morning.
Great news though, I managed to secure one of the last train tickets to Chiang Mai to celebrate the Thai New Year! Apparently the culmination of the event is a huge city wide water-gun fight! I should have brought a Super Soaker… I need to go market hunting for a good weapon.
I went to see the huge “Red Shirt” protests at the city center today. From what I could tell everything seemed very safe and well oredered despite all of the doom and gloom travel warning from the US State Department. Its actually a great time to visit because its the low season and the protesters are keeping the rest of the tourists away.
I only have about 5 minutes of net time left so I must take my leave. Be safe and have fun in whatever you all are up to!
