On the way to Siem Reap
    Waited in the morning for 1 more friend to fly into town, then the 5 of us were off to Siem Reap.  But first we had to stop and get some food..... you never realize how hard it is to order until you are in a restaraunt where there is no english menu and no one speaks English.  Well... we managed :)

There are various methods to get from Phnom Penh to Siem Reap (air, road, sea), so we choose the most convenient.  We all chiped in USD25 and hired a van with a driver.  When he picked us up, we told him to take the expressway..... oh wait, there is no expressway in Cambodia!! haha - sorry... but that trip was quiet adventurous.  The great thing was we saw a lot of the countryside, and also how people get around.  I guess the normal form of transportation is to pack as many peope as you can in one of these open pick-up van's.  I think at point I counted 30 bodies in (or on top of) the vehicle.  Very creative way to get around.  The trip (including a brief pit stop) took about 4 hours.  We finally have arrived to Siem Reap....
