Going to Cambodia...

In mid-spring I am going to Cambodia for one month to do stories with my girlfriend (who is a journalist) and our 8 mth. old son.

Does any one have some Genneral experiences to share regarding the countruy, culture, ways to behave, work, bureaucracy and so on?

And allso; does anyone have suggestions for must-do-while-there-photo-projects?

Advices on travelling with small children in warm countries will likewise be much wellkome!

Best regards Ty

Ways to behave? Be polite, fluid and patient…

Work? Get a one-year business visa (260$)

Bureaucracy? None

Photo Projects? Hang around and find out…

Children? No problem

The “returnees” are a story in themselves – but they’re also a good resource for translation, assistance, etc. Most of them are desperate for work, so if you are going to be hiring translators, etc, I would really urge you to hook them up – you should be able to reach them through Bill Herod at the Returnee Assistance Program in Phnomh Pehn.

hopefully this contact info for Bill is current:

if you’re looking into a returnee story, you could also look up Srin “Leesha” Jessica. I knew her and her husband well, and she has been a fixer for work on the BBC and for the South China Morning Post magazine. She also knows a lot of the original batch of returnees, many of whom have left Bill/RAP.

Thanks all for the exellent adwises!

The trip have now been postponed till autumn due to risk of malaria for infants but the more time for preparation…

Information like this is invaluable and what makes a trip a success or not. LS rules!

Ty,

DON’T stay in Denmark. Infants could catch the flu, or cancer, or diabetes, or whatever… ;-)

Malaria is around all year in Cambodia. And so is dengue, and diabetes, and chicken flu, and SRAS, and TB, and AIDS and so much more (but not much more than in Denmark). But then of course there are no mines in Denmark…

Number one killer here is the road (or is it two?) !!!
