Recounting our tuk tuk experience at the worst Mexican restaurant in Cambodia...

Back at our guest house chatting the evening away...


Had a massage by a blind person today...very odd experience. You're in a room with 4 other people getting massaged and I got bored after a while so I started watching how they massaged the others in the room and their eyes were completely white - like they'd rolled back in to their head and that was a bit creepy! Some of them wave their head from side to side and up and down too!

Got ripped off at the Royal Palace because Evelyn and I had strappy tops on and they wouldn't let us in without covering our shoulders so we were forced to buy these terrible t-shirts, which disgruntled me greatly! Still only $3 but you get in to this mentality when you're only paying $3 a night for your guesthouse! Then they wanted another $2 to let us use our cameras!!! But I refused to pay and prentended I wouldn't take any pics and apart form one official telling me off I got away with snapping happy!

Then...the weirdest tuk tuk journey yet. First, the 4 of us barter with this guy to take us to an ATM and then on to where the bars are for $2. We get to the ATM - which is fine and then he tries to drop us off at some burger joint that we're having none of. So after much 'it's too far - gasoline expensive for me' we are forced to agree to another $1 to take us to 'Elsewhere Bar' which a friend told me about in Koh Chang, so where does he take us....Walkabout! So we get the owner of Walkabout to tell our tuk tuk driver where Elsewhere bar is (and we showed him on the map!) and we head off again...we get to the end of some random street where he stops and asks some tuk tuk friends where the hell this bar is and they're all laughing at him because he doesn't know where it is and he's gone the wrong direction down the right street so then he tries making us pay more money to take us back up this (long) street and we're having none of it - all getting pretty pissed off at this point, so he gets in a little strop with us and at his mates laughing at him and roars off doing a wheelie...which, and this is just the best bit, he smacks his front teeth on the speedometer plastic, so he's bleeding and he's broken his bike, which makes his friends laugh even more and after a while of laughing I give him a tissue coz i'm nice and feel a bit bad for the guy spitting blood out for the next 10 mins! So, he calms down and eventually takes us to Elsewhere bar...and we all burst out laughing when we arrive and see a sign saying that Elsewhere bar is closed on Tuesdays!!! SO we head to some terrible Mexican joint (The Mex) before going back to our guesthouse for a happy pizza, and drinking with the other backpackers till 3am.
