As you may have gleaned from my recent photos of the day, I was in Vietnam last week, as I had to renew my visa for Cambodia again, and used it as an excuse to see some friends and breathe some cool mountain air. The photo album, which includes Saigon and Dalat, is online and ready for viewing. You can find it here. Enjoy!

Thanks to strong and convenient internet connections (thank you, Vietnam) and time ‘off’ (thank you, Khmer New Year), I’ve put some more albums online:

Ban Lung, Ratanakiri Province, where I did a three-day jungle trek;

some more Phnom Penh fun;

and, yes, rice mysteriously laid out to dry on the street.

A full listing of photo albums can be found by clicking here or on the ‘Photos’ link above.

Also, if you look at the menu above, you’ll see I’ve added a new page I’m calling ‘Post archive for the lazy.’ There you’ll find links to all past posts.

I may not have seen any sites in Dalat yet, but at least I’ve improved the blog!

OK, OK, you caught me. I haven’t been writing. I’ve been relaxing—at the riverside, the seaside, the countryside…

But I have recently returned to Phnom Penh, so at the very least I now have loads of new photos for you. Many are actually old photos, I should say—just newly uploaded. I also reorganized the photo album page in a way that I hope makes it more user-friendly.

So you can now both backtrack to my missing month (Laos) and see where I was last week (Kep), and a few things in between.

Just a few, however. The album listing is by no means complete, as there is still more of Laos to show you and, of course, Angkor Wat. Those photos still await me having an even bigger chunk of free time (I know, ‘free time,’ sorry!) in which to edit and upload them, as there are so very many! And the internet service here is so slow…

In the meantime, I hope you enjoy these and they will tide you over for now.

Two caveats, one of which I’ve mentioned on the photo page. There is one album from my visit to Tuol Sleng, which is now a museum and which used to be Pol Pot’s secret prison/torture chamber. The photos are not for the faint of heart or weak of stomach, but I really do suggest you force yourself to look.

The second is much less of a caveat than an explanation. If you click on the Kep album you will notice that the entire first I’m-not-even-going-to-go-back-and-check-how-many are of a sunset. Which is a beautiful sunset, but, I know, come on, Mia. Well, there is a story that goes with them, so you might want to click each one anyway, if only to read the little sunset-seeking adventure tale that goes with them. (And come on, a little extra gorgeous sunset never hurt anybody. Though actually, I’m lucky that in the end going to see it didn’t hurt me…)

OK, that’s it for now. I may very well be headed to the jungle soon, so if you don’t see any photos of the day after about a week or so (that is as far as I have scheduled them), you’ll know why.

You can view all of the albums, new and old, by clicking on ‘Photos’ above or by clicking here. And of course, don’t forget you can also catch up here on all the photos of the day you might have missed along the way!

Happy new year and greetings from Kratie, Cambodia!

I’ve (finally) posted tons of new photos for your viewing pleasure. You can check them out here. Or you can click on the ‘Photos’ page link above.

By the time you finish viewing them, hopefully I will have written another post…and/or posted more recent pictures from Laos, which I just left yesterday morning…

As part of the redesign (still in progress…more than halfway there, though), I’ve added a ‘Photos‘ page that has links to my online photo albums. For those interested in seeing (many) more photos, click there. It’s right above here.

Or click here. Click anywhere you want, really.
