BATTAMBANG!


There are only a couple activities in Battambang, a friendly and dreadfully sweaty town in Western Cambodia. The "Bamboo Train" is a bamboo raft with a motor attached that runs really fast on railroad tracks and the countryside tour allows you to see village families engaged in rice paper making, fish paste fermenting, and noodle pounding. During the five hottest hours of the day tourists can retreat to the friendly shops which serve pancakes and coffee for cheap. Our favorite was the Sunrise Cafe, frequented by American missionaries, which served iced coffee with ice cubes made out of coffee!!! Holy Crap, why haven't we been doing this our whole lives?
