Inevitably, the big kids had some fun too - Bonna, Sreymom and Dtouch having a giggle together

After a full day of doing stuff, we headed to the riverside in the evening for a boat cruise and dinner. That's where the three tuk-tuks come in - 14 Kiwis in all including Marty and Robyn and Christian and Becs.
There were six in our tuktuk so Susie gets to sit with her boys.
Amazing! Now to send the reply - most likely to be hand-carried out by Christian and Becs when they leave on Monday - and posted from NZ.

On the beach - where you will always attract delightful kids hawking stuff. Here is Christian and Becs strolling with some of the locals.
Apart from talking, reading and generally lazing, we also took an excellent boat daytrip on a well-built three-deck boat. We got to snorkel on a dead coral reef, swim on island beaches and thoroughly enjoy a day on the water. The boat towed a couple of fish lures and one king mackeral obliged. Maybe I should have been polite and not grabbed the rod so fast ...
6kg of fierce fighting fish - well, the little guy was caught on a marlin rod so he pretty well got winched in
... but then again I have my son to feed ...
Barbequed mackeral - better than a lamb shank, even!

Christian getting measured up for a work suit - all going well, he'll get a second one made for his Beehive days. A good suit here is a quarter the price of NZ - maybe less.

Another inferior phone picture sorry - Long's mum on the left; our very new lady on the right with her baby and her sick son.
We're expecting the boys back Sunday or Monday. They will have to couch-surf for a day or three. It will be a fresh challenge to establish a second home next year - but we must pursue. The Cambodian people are far too beautiful to ignore!
