Ant & Tour Buses

Posted in Animals, General, Travel at 10:00 pm by Warren Williams

After a smal rest from Tonle Sap, paid US$10 for the “luxury” coach, for a faster trip. Fast it was, for 10km. Bang. The front right tyre blew out, and this is when a typical “not-sure-what-to-do” scenario came into effect. Took 45min of patient waiting on the bus, for them to say, please get off, we need to take off the wheel. Well the wheel was already off, and the bus sat precariously on a small jack. After almost three hours waiting, they finally decided to send another bus from the depot just down the road.

During the wait, I was left to photograph ants, and talk to a couple other travelling photographers.

20D + 24-105L

The bus rolled up into the darkness of Phnom Pheng around 9pm. After leaving at just after 12 midday, it was a long time to sit around on a bus! Tomorrow involves an early flight, wait at the airport, before another flight to Krabi around lunchtime.
