Feeling hot hot hot! November 20, 2006Posted by Amanda in Uncategorized.
Last time we arrived in Asia we were coming from the beginnings of an Australian summer so at least we had had a little frying pan before the fire. This time we have jumped straight from the freezer into the flames.
To give an example this picture was taken last weekend in London and we had had several weeks of cold before this. So arriving into the heat and humidity of South East Asia is a bit of a shock to the system, especially here in Cambodia.
We were trying to be good money saving tourists by only having a room with a fan but unfortunately the hut we have been in also had no ventilation so after last night when the temperature didn’t drop below 30 degrees and I didn’t go to sleep until 4.00am, today we have changed to an air-con room and a hot shower. It makes such a difference! No more being sticky all day and night from sunscreen and sweat, no more griping at each other from headaches and lack of sleep. It also means that we have somewhere to retreat to in the middle of the day with a view even!
Tomorrow we head to Phnom Penh and then to Vietnam on Thursday.
