I have been living in the Philippines for about two years now.  I had planned to move to the Cebu area but between the increased traffic, drought, and the new president i am having second thoughts.  I am planning a trip to Cambodia and Vietnam next month.  It will be mostly just looking around but with a possibility of moving over there in the future.

It's bigger than 2 forty foot containers for 100 times the price. Such a deal!!!

Of course not! He's a glow in the dark engineer. In their view, anything worth doing should be done large! I'm surprised you didn't know that Paul.

If you head to battambang, let me know. Not sure if I will be anywhere else, any time soon.

Was that a brag or a complaint?  A bunk of any kind was a luxury to us, when in the bush, we slept in the mud with the leeches.  Our meals we cold out of a box, unless we had some spare C4 to heat them.  You slept in a bunk, had good hot food 3x a day or more and got to play with radiation.  What could be better than that?

Ya' got a point there Bill. The food on nuke subs was pretty decent, until we kind of ran out of food one trip and were eating cheese soup and such for the final 3-4 days before pulling into Diego Garcia to resupply.

 

I'd rather hot-bunk on a sub than sleep in the mud with leeches! :)

 

Taking a daily bath in radiation keeps me well preserved! :yahoo:
