Cambodian highway adventure

by woceht

This morning I am headed towards Siem Reap on the Golden Bayon Express. The bus is packed full, old and dingy, and the advertised WiFi does not work. By dint of being small and female I have been assigned the seat right in the back on top of the rear wheel, making for a horrid ride over the portions where the road has been eroded away as we fly over the potholes beeping erratically at the vehicles we pass as the surrounding fields pass by at uncomfortable speeds. Fuck you, driver. Have I mentioned that I can’t wait to be off the tourist trail?
