To anyone who has tried to contact me on my new Cambodian SIM,
or a few days before on my Malaysian one, I am not receiving any
texts or calls. I don't know what's gone wrong with this phone but
I can only send texts and make calls, I can't receive them. Sorry
I asked the English guy who runs the hostel I'm currently staying
in and he just said, 'don't try and get it fixed here, you'll only make it
worse!', referring to the typically useless Cambodians! He wasn't
being mean (he's married to one!), just realistic. There is also
the language barrier too, which is harder here.
He suggested I wait until I get to Thailand, but that's gonna be about
three weeks away. Feeling a bit cut off now, but will manage. I'm
managing to check my email regularly so please email me if you want
to get in touch, especially if it's something important. Only thing is I'm
off to a castaway island tomorrow, for a week, so will have to pick up
any emails up after that.
Mum, Dad, Marcus, I have some credit so will try and call you for a
quick chat whilst I'm there. But, if you don't hear from me, don't worry.
It's likely there won't be any signal. I'm staying at the Paradise
Bungalows on Koh Rong (a little island off South East Cambodia).
Hope you're all shiny happy people, will be in touch soon.
