BACK FROM THAILAND AND CAMBODIA

I had the greatest time ever. You know traveling alone is great. If you want to do something, you do it. If you make plans to do something you can break them and do nothing. However I did go over with a plan to look and land a job. I did a bunch af interviews with International Schools and left mu Resume' with all of them. I also went to art schools and did the same thing, Galleries the same. Nothing yet.

The art school I went to for a scheduled interview was funny. When I got there it was in an area in Cambodia like in Good Morning Viet Nam. The head of the art school was impressed with my Resume'. He offered me a job teaching. However he could't pay much or give me a lot of hours. I said I wanted to hear his offer. He could only give me 2 hours at $10.00 an hour I asked, 2 hours a day, he said no 2 hours a month. I tried not to laugh. I declined the kind offer.

I met some great people as well as went to some places I have never been. Such as Koh Ker temple or Watt. Also The Temple of Preach Vihear. Both about 150 Kilometers away fro Siem Reap where I was staying. They also where on top of these giant mountain tops. Which I had to climb. So that day I hiked 13 miles and climbed 56 flights of stairs. OUCH!! A great experiance.

Oh! I forgot to mention that I got lost on the way back to the taxi and ended up on the Thai-Cambodia border. Of corse the wrong turn made me climb an additional 125 steps. Fun-fun-fun. HA!
