11 things I learnt in Cambodia...

1. A moto is a great replacement for a transport truck.

2. All the earth-days in the world don’t beat Cambodia’s method of saving electricity : turn it off for a few days.

3. A beauty saloon is not what you think.

4. Red lights are useless. So are line-ups.

5. Five dollars is way overpriced for a GAP t-shirt. I’ll offer you $2.00.

6. You can use plastic bags for just about anything. They’re great for take-out drinks, especially coffee.

7. Beef makes great chewing gum. It’s all in how the butchery’s done.

8. Helmets are only necessary until 5pm. That’s when police officers go home, so you won’t get fined anyway.

9. A moto is also a great replacement for a mini-van.

10. If you do have a truck to use, pile as much stuff as you can on it, as high as you can. Make it 3 times the height and size of the truck. Then, have your buddy sit on top of the pile to make sure it doesn’t fall off. Don’t worry, there’s a slight chance you won’t topple over.

11. Life IS much better when you nap at lunch time.

Becs, I think after your India trip, you'll appreciate all the other comments so much. You'll have to make your own list when you get back! ;)
