Martin Rickitt has survived his trip around Laos and Cambodia, the latest news is that there is now a new three route city service in Pnom Penh the capital, the ticket haul wasn't large but it wasn't a transport tour. Martin has decided not to come on the Mexico trip which has rather put the dampers on plans but alternatives methods are being investigated and I'm sure we'll sort something out, guides seem to be expensive at around £40 an hour whilst taxis are both expensive and potentially dangerous it really is a place where caution comes first and having someone to guide and escort us at all times outside the hotel seems a sensible solution to the trip and perhaps we can share a twin room and cover the extra cost or invite others to join but I don't relish being responsible for the safety of those outside our small circle. Hopefully the Indian visa is under way and I heard from Handan in Bangladesh with the confirmation letter we require when putting in for our Bangladesh visas at the back end of this month.
I must push on with the West Midlands and then get Sussex out of the way. Meanwhile photos from Eastbourne Monday morning this week
