koh thmei [island escape]

koh thmai


one good (is that possible?) thing about the hot season here is that is comes with lots of holidays.  after our april travels to sihanoukville & mondulkiri, we still got to celebrate the king's birthday in may with a 4-day long weekend.  so, we hopped on a bus & then some moto taxis & finally a boat with our friend lisa to check out koh thmei, an island off the coast of cambodia.   it was remote, relaxing & refreshing & went by in a flash!  before we knew it we were sailing the fishing boat through a thunder storm on our way back to meet our bus to phnom penh.  we got a bit nervous when the driver started bailing out buckets full of the rain water collecting in the boat, but all's well that end's well!

Such a different way of life, rich, uncomplicated and refreshing.

Cedar is growing up right before our eyes. Do you know or will you let us know ...boy or girl?
