lots of death

This blog is a little out of order and we'll update with pictures in a few days when we have more time.. now on to the eventful trip into Cambodia. We started out on a three day tour of the Mekong (pictures to follow) and a boat ride to Phnom Penh. On the way from Vietnam to Cambodia (five hour boat ride in the fast boat) I spotted a body in the water. I told Val to look what was in the water. She took a quick glance and was pissed that I made her look, but I was not sure if it was what I thought. It was definitely a naked man flotting on the waves. There were about twenty other people on the boat and I thought that I must have been seeing things, otherwise the other people and the boat driver would have noticed.
Today we spent most of the day touring the city seeing the sites which relates to Pol Pot's genocide mission and the Killing fields. Nice town but the big draw is death and we got the full tour.
On a brighter note we are off to the beach in Sihanookville for a few days before hitting the temples at Angkor.
