    Logistics and Land Mines

    December 22nd, 2007 by mary

    We took a side trip back to Bangkok to meet up with our diving gear that an army of Steve’s friends were involved in, doing various logistics somersaults, to get a box out to us. We’ve met up with said baggage and can’t thank everyone that was involved enough, especially the Daves. You know who you are and seriously…we can only imagine the trouble you guys went through to make this happen and can’t figure out why you guys were willing to do it, but wholly glad that you were. :)

    So now we’re going to be on a bus to Cambodia on Christmas day. Doing research on the country you see the typical warnings like scams, malaria, and monkeys. But it’s a little disconcerting to get to the part of the world where land mines is added nonchalantly to that list. It’s a real threat apparently and the suggestions are to ‘stay on the beaten path’. Well, as far as I can figure there are only 2 paved roads in the country outside the cities and everything else is dirt. Needless to say we’ll be thinking twice before we follow a jungle path to a less visited temple. But what if twice isn’t enough?
