Aaaaaaah.........................

  What a beautiful read! I love it, TehBorken. Thank you! Thank you! Thank you! It was funny and touching at the same time.

  She's gorgeous especially in the last photo. So happy for you, man.

  I like the part about the dentist. Hilarious! The picture of the brain part was.... *cough cough*

Thanks for sharing all that.  I know how much she means to you and am so glad you've included me in this journey.  I wish you two the very best - I have a feeling you two are 'forever keepers' to each other.  You deserve the very best, and it looks like you found her!

xoxo,

wow, sounds like an experience. Welcome home again to you and your bride! Congrats again.

  EDIT: It looks like a cross between parts of Africa and China where Ive been. Alot of your food stories seem similar as well, I hope you had something like immodium. Did the McDonalds join other fast food outlets like pizza hut and KFC? Ive seen ones like that, and you actually get seated AND SERVED including booze in them.

Im glad you went and experienced that, most people I talk to havent ever experienced how alot of the world lives.'bless'

 Yeah, that's exactly what my stomach said: "*cough cough*". I ate a lot of stuf I shouldn't have and I paid for it, believe me I paid for it. There's nothing like Cambodian diarheaa, the wondrous green color and tapioca-like consistency has to be ummm experienced to be believed.

Nope, it's almost unobtainable. There is almost no medicine in the entire country. Over-the-counter stuff like immodium or Tylenol or even aspirin is nearly impossible to get. She did find me something that worked, but it took a special trip to the "Pharmacie".

No, thank god, there are no fast food places in Cambodia that I saw. The closest thing was the Lucky Seven, but no McDonalds, No Pizza Hut, Wendys, etc. None.

I met her through a friend of mine who lives here (in Seattle). He and his wife are both Cambodian.

Ah! Welcome back and yes, thank you for sharing your journey    :)
You were missed.
 
For thou art with me; thy cream and thy sugar they comfort me
Thou preparest a carafe before me in the presence of Juan Valdez
Thou anointest my day with pep; my mug runneth over
Surely richness and taste shall follow me all the days of my life
And I will dwell in the house of coffee forever.

P.C.
