We leave Cambodia two days earlier than anticipated and take the bus into Thailand as there is no train network in Cambodia. The Thai bus company is appalling but luckily we meet some nice people on the bus to reduce the irritation caused by the bus journey taking 12 hours instead of 6, making all the heartache worthwhile!
There is no boot space whatsoever on the bus to the border and therefore the luggage takes up seats. The view is not good
In one case we stop at a building with a sign on it saying 'International Border Terminal for Foreigners', which actually turned out to be a crap cafe.
This sign should deter drug trafficking, but could easily be mistaken for a theme park advertisement - maybe something like the Vampire Ride in Chessington. We consider starting a heavy metal band called 'Death Penalty', but decide that heavy metal is a bit 90's.
No mans' land between Cambodia and Thailand is a strange street with a number of casinos - as apparently gambling is illegal in both countries.
We have definitely arrived in Thailand.
The shambolic bus company packs our second bus after the border with too many people. Their luggage takes up our two seats, meaning we have to wait another hour and get delivered to a different location, having to sit in the back of a pick up truck probably normally used for transporting pigs.
Just before getting to Bangkok the bus stops for petrol and we have a chance to buy deep fried insects. Suddenly everyone joins Stephen and becomes vegetarian.
