On route

We say our farewells to Ms R and Ms S as their trip is ending As the boat taking us off the island departs a Fish Eagle flies overhead. A good omen I hope. We take a mini bus to the main road where we board the VIP bus to Cambodia. At the border we hand over a fist full of dollars. This includes a dollar for a medical inspection which is carried out by a woman leaping on the bus,pointing a little beeping gun at each of us and handing us a leaflet that advises us to seek medical attention if we feel ill.:) From the border we head south and eventually rendezvous with another, rather shabbier bus in the middle of nowhere, which we transfer to. After driving all day we stop in a garage where those of us going to Siem Reap transfer to an even more basic machine, where we have to climb over the spare tyre to get in. We get to Siem Reap in the middle of the night and thankfully a tuk tuk from the hotel is waiting for us at the bus station. This dive by shot is probably our last sight of the Mekong on route.
