Trips

Around The World in 66 Days

2/1/2013: On the recommendation of the Sam Veasna center, we joined a trip to a reservoir a couple of hours outside Siem Reap in search of the Sarus Crane. The reservoir is quite large, and it was built using slave labor during the Khmer Rouge period. We drove around on farmland for the most part, and like everywhere else in Cambodia, the wildlife was terrorized.

After a huge effort, we found the cranes at the very end of the trip. As we rode in the car toward the Thailand border, we found a couple of truck batteries on the road. Road score!
