Unfortunately, for Teresa's big birthday, we've also got some big weather in the form of torrential rain. This is the first day of really bad weather we've had since we left (excluding the Himalayas). Typical!
We came down to Sihanoukville a couple of days ago which is on the coast and was a five-hour bus ride south-west of Phnom Penh. There are some beautiful beaches but, due to the weather, the sea is churned-up and rough so they don't look quite as nice as some of the beaches we have visited so far. We may go 'offshore' to one of the islands in the next few days. The islands are still undeveloped so hopefully we will find a deserted paradise somewhere.
Will post some more pictures of the birthday celebrations (wish you were all here) and of Sihanoukville later.
