Erik arrives in Singapore tonight. It will be cool to finally show him where I live and go to school, but that's about all of the city he will see on this visit. We will be heading to Cambodia tomorrow evening for a two week bike trip.

Why Cambodia? Triangulating 1) Erik's time constraints and desire for some beach time with 2) my desire to see more of SE asia and 3) our joint love of bicycles, this is what I could pull together on in a relatively short time frame.

I know embarrassingly little about Cambodia. What I do know is that it has a long and rich history that has been marred by decades of civil disputes. Sandwiched between two more popular destinations, Vietnam and Thailand, my intuition tells me that its unlikely that we are going to discover a cultural void.

I'm looking forward to spending some time with Erik and learning more Kampuchea. I'm also looking forward to getting on the bike again. I haven't sat on a bike seat since the first weekend of August!
