Trying to Find Mushrooms in Phnom Penh | Drug Scene

I was never much of a druggie (since I don’t consider weed a drug) but have done mushrooms a few times. I wanted to try them again but had a much harder time finding that particular drug in Phnom Penh than I imagined. I was offered damn near everything except for mushrooms. In Sihanoukville at the happy pizza and...

I was at the beach when I see a western girl going crazy yelling at a tuk-tuk driver.  She was pushing him and her boyfriend was there yelling some also.  There were also about 20 other tuk-tuk drivers creeping closer...

Cambodian Ladyboys

So, Cambodia ladyboys (gets a few hundred Google searches a month, thought I’d throw up an article). Well as I’ve blogged before, I lived in Sihanoukville for 7 months.
