So today I sat on a boat. Took 8.5 hours. It was good. And it was a ride that in a normal “western” boat at higher water levels would take 3 hours or less.
I sat on top. The views were great. I can’t fathom living in one of the many floating villages along the way. Our boat’s wake sent multiple people falling off their little boats. I felt guilty about that. I was very glad for my sun umbrella today.
I went with the hordes off the boat on to vans heading to one of the hotels in Battambang. Man those touts did well today! Virtually the entire boat ended up in the same hotel. At least it’s good.
