On our last night in Phnom Penh we had to go and pick up our Thai visas, so we got Pang our trusty Tuk Tuk driver to take us to the “shop” where we got them.
As a quick aside we had gone to the Thai Embassy the previous week, filled in the forms and in true bureaucratic style they “buggered” us about. They wanted copies of airline tickets and goodness knows what else which meant going back across town trying to print tickets from the laptop without a printer and so on. So Pang dropped us at a “hole in the wall” office with about twenty motorbikes parked inside the office. We gave them the filled out forms and our passports and $90US ($80 for the visas and $10 commission). They said come back in four days which leads us to where we are now. Visas ready!!!!
So back to the hotel and the first monsoon rain came down…. and down!!!
Have a look at the video I am sure in some parts of Australia they would love rain like this.
