Chapter forty seven - Sihanoukville (the sequel)

sunny 28 °C

Day 170: Sihanoukville, Cambodia 18/03/12

Our last day on the island, so we pack early and get ready to leave, heading to the beach for the last time after a quick breakfast of peanut butter and jelly baguettes. We actually spend most of the day on the beach, which is more than welcome, taking photos and generally enjoying it. On a personal note, I have another day of howlers, firstly stubbing my toe on a buried tree root, secondly, walking into a tree branch that stabs me in the side and, most painfully, standing on a sea urchin, who kindly deposits six or seven deadly looking spines in my foot.

Before leaving the island I help the boys that work there in from the boat with the bundles of palm leaf roof tiles. They look light but feel heavy. Lucky I have been hitting the gym (into my face). We pay the bill and take the boat back to the mainland, trying our hand at a bit of fishing again. Again, the fish are not informed of our intentions and we land nothing.

Get a room back at Mick & Craig's. Unfortunately, Sihanoukville cannot hold a candle to Koh Ta Kiev. Quick skype then bed. Happy Mother's Day.
