not all who wander are lost.

Found a lovely place to eat in Battambang, the White Rose. $0.30 for hot tea, $0.50 fresh coconut, and $1.75 for a big bowl of soup. Had dinner there last night then headed straight to bed. Gillian and I are sharing a double room which costs $5/night (so $2.50 each). It has a CLEAN mosquito free bathroom, two glorious comfortable beds, a strong fan and even a minifridge. Its in the heart of town. This morning we woke up, has breakfast at the White Rose and then hired a TukTuk for the day. Our drivers name was Sual. He was wonderful ( or in Khmer, "a-cha"). For $14(7ea) we covered some serious ground- leaving our hotel at 930am and returning at 3pm! We hit a vineyard, two temples, a very old guesthouse and the killing caves. This was our guide through the killing caves, sardah. He was such a delight, spoke great English and always had a smile on his face.
