Stew and I have been on 25 km countryside bike ride to check out the area, haggled at markets and managed to bring down a pair of pants from $8 to $5, we also stopped in at Green Gecko Project where we're working and had our orientation. We're meant to be working Mon, Tues and Wed, but looks like they're so keen we'll be working from Monday to Friday. It's the closest thing we'll ever get to a full time job.

We've already brainwashed the kids with our song 'Crazy Dog' and I'm teaching a couple of the boys the chords too. These kids pick up things fast. Next on the repertoire is to teach the chords for 'Imagine' to a boy named Laan.
Siem Reap is incredible. Cheap, rough, dangerous, but beautiful and humble also.We've taken to riding bikes everywhere we go, it's cheaper. I can only describe it as being as thrilling as roller derby, but one strike and you're gone. Riding in the rain, through peak hour traffic and doing a left hand turn is one of the scariest, most exhilarating things we've ever done.
