Seeing the sights in Cambodia with the Mills family and "Glengarry Goes Walkabout"
(story and dates may not be in order, so are listed as posted)



845.
30 Apr 2014 "Glengarry Goes Walkabout" Glengarry is inspired by the ancient past.
The ultimate fusion of creative ambition and spiritual devotion ,the temples of Angkor are a source of inspiration and profound pride
to all Khmers. Traveling to this region you will not want to miss their extravagant beauty and spine - tingling grandeur.
There are endless options when it comes to exploring Angkor ,it will take us three days to see our chosen sites ,to get there we have
chosen to hire a Tuk Tuk which is a small 200cc motorbike converted with a trailer attachment and our driver is a young lad called Kung,
once there we have chosen the environmentally friendly method of exploring on foot, also as in days of old on the second day we will
travel by Elephant between the South Gate of Angkor Thom and the Bayon and from the base to the summit of Phnom Bakheng.
Where to begin with Angkor? There is no greater concentration of architectural riches anywhere on earth, the largest being Angkor Wat
which we will leave till last ,even though the temptation is drawing us there as she glimmers in the sunlight as we pass.
Our first choice is Preah Khan, the ultimate fusion temple uniting Buddhism and Hinduism .
We started early to dodge the crowds and we had a wonderful visit.
at Siam Reap Cambodia

Cambodia with the Mills family and "Glengarry Goes Walkabout"
(story and dates may not be in order, so are listed as posted)



868.
30 Apr 2014 "Glengarry Goes Walkabout" It was an early breakfast and Kung arrived on time and we headed of through morning traffic to the
South Gates of Angkor Thom and as in days of old we traveled by elephant to the Bayon.this being one of the big three that helped to put
Cambodia on the map as the temple capital of Asia.
The temples surviving today are but the sacred skeleton of the vast political, religious and social centre of the ancient Khmer empire.
Angkor was a city that, at it's zenith , boasted a population of one million.

880.
30 Apr 2014 "Glengarry Goes Walkabout" Came across a troop of monkeys between the South Gate at Angkor Thom and the Bayon.
I could think of a few captions to add to these...lol...have a look at the facial expressions of the two monkeys in the boom boom position,
typical male and a unimpressed female ...lol. at Angkor Wat Temple Cambodia



881.



882.



883.



884.
30 Apr 2014 "Glengarry Goes Walkabout" Health and safety has not actually been a priority here in Siem Reap but I,m sure in time it will change.
As progress and tourist dollars encourage change ,so will attitudes and that's when it spoils the region. I,m probably being a little selfish when
I say spoil, that is from a travelers vision ,if it improves lifestyle and education then that is good for the people. at Siam Reap Cambodia

Angkor Wat. Angkor is considered heaven and earth, namely the the symbolic representation of Mt Meru, the Mt Olympus of the Hindu Faith and abode
of the ancient gods. First impression is simply staggering and the ultimate expression of Khmer genius. at Angkor Wat Temple Cambodia

opportunities ,some of the students are deaf and mute . Some of the skills include wood carving, stone sculpting ,silver plating and silk painting.
The large wooden figures you see are being completed for a customer in Italy.

A big post this one, a guided tour of Chic's tobacco factory and guest house, with the Mills family and "Glengarry Goes Walkabout"
(story and dates may not be in order, so are listed as posted)



938.
4 May 2014 "Glengarry Goes Walkabout" We leave Siem Reap behind us ,Charlie and Avy picked us up this morning and we drove to Kampong Cham
where Charlie and Avy have their own hospitality business and where we will be staying for a few days, it's called Chaplins Guest House and
is situated on the banks of the Mekong River ,the drive took an interesting five hours.The lady with the bamboo sections is selling sticky
rice by the roadside and it is cooked inside the bamboo and is delicious at Chaplins Bar and Restaurant

4 May 2014 "Glengarry Goes Walkabout" Glengarry settles at Charlie and Avy,s place Chaplins Guest House on the banks of the Mekong River .
Charlie leaves the running and operation of Chaplins to Avy whilst he concentrates on his main concern as Director and CEO of a larger
operation of a major Cambodian Tobacco Company .
Some of the art decor in Chaplins was completed by a former Black Watch member and formidable boxer in his day and I,m sure a few of our
lads may have felt his left hook, Mr Charlie Sexton who resides in this area also has an artistic flare.
We are looking forward to our stay and local hospitality. at Chaplins Bar and Restaurant

957.
4 May 2014 "Glengarry Goes Walkabout" We had a very interesting day. Charlie gave us an in depth tour of his operation (Leaf Processors Cambodia)
and the size ,capacity and turnover is mind boggling.
You will notice the horse and carts crossing the Mekong River loaded with tobacco bails on there way to the factory for grading, you will also see
the workforce grading tobacco on the shop floor, this is a lengthy process and goes through a number of cross checks before being selected and
moved to a preparation area which you will notice involves large industrial and technical machinery . These machines were sourced by Charlie in
Spain ,dismantled and moved to Italy for a refurbishment program before being shipped to Cambodia and reassembled in preparation for use .
There is a number of processes that are carried out including scientific tests before selection and packaging in preparation for loading into shipping
containers to be shipped to customers all over the world.
Grading and selection appear to be a key process in the success of a top quality product and teamwork is an important quality that Charlie instills
in his workforce. It is demanding work in temperatures of high humidity and with hard work come satisfactory rewards.
Thanks Charlie for a very interesting informative insight . at Kom Pong Cham Province

975.
6 May 2014 "Glengarry Goes Walkabout" A sobering visit to Wat Preah Theat Thmor , our Tuk Tuk driver Bute gave us a guided tour
of this holy shrine which hides a past of darkness that would send shivers down your spine.During the dark years of the Khmer Rouge
1975 to 1979 this place was used as a torture and death camp and the evidence is still visible.
Take a look at the stone lion statues and on the rear end of one of these statues you will see the stone has worn away, this was
used as a sharpening stone for the Khmer Rouge to sharpen there's chosen weapons of slaughter, after torturing there victims they
would decapitate them on this very spot. They preferred to use sharp instruments rather than waste money on expending bullets.
All victims were anyone who wore glasses, could speak English ,French or any other language , Teachers and Intellectuals. 3000
people were executed here by Pol Pots butchers and 40000 in Kampong Cham district were killed and all were documented .
Bute the Tuk Tuk driver explained his father was a teacher and the day the Khmer Rouge took power he fled from the school and put
on peasant clothes and him and his wife were assigned to the fields every day while a young Bute was taken from the home and spent
his days being brainwashed into the Maoist way of thinking, his fathers silence saved his life while his brother was executed for
being a pilot.
During the dark years of 1975 to 1979 Cambodia was renamed Kampochea until the Vietnamese liberated the country.

More from the "tobacco fields" in Cambodia with the Mills family and "Glengarry Goes Walkabout"
(story and dates may not be in order, so are listed as posted)



999.
6 May 2014 "Glengarry Goes Walkabout" We were introduced to a Mr Mengnee The Agronomist for Charlie's company. (Agronomy is the science and
technology of producing and using plants for food, fuel, fiber and land reclamation).
He took us on a tour of some of the companies tobacco suppliers farms.
A very interesting process from seed to growth and cultivation and made us more aware of the process and work involved in the preparation process.
The farmers work very hard to achieve a quality produce which includes two main processes ,Air Drying and Curing which is carried out in smoke
houses at varying temperatures. In a few weeks time this whole area will be approximately 6ft under water as the rainy season is upon us the
Mekong River will start to rise. at Kampong Cham

7 May 2014 "Glengarry Goes Walkabout" Charlie picked us up this morning and took us on a guided tour of a local cigarette manufacturer .
From the graded tobacco leaf to its preparation through adding flavours to cutting and final packaging is very interesting and a learning experience
to see it all come together.
The Cambodians are self reliant and most of this machinery was made from copying originals.
We have now seen all the stages from seed to the final product and it has been very interesting to have had this exposure and Morgan has now much to
add to his journal about his experience.
Thanks Charlie for the opportunity it's been wonderful. at Kom Pong Cham Province

In Cambodia with the Mills family and "Glengarry Goes Walkabout"
(story and dates may not be in order, so are listed as posted)



1015.
11 May 2014 "Glengarry Goes Walkabout" We took a weekend trip from Kampong Cham to the capital city of Phnom Penh. The route we travelled
included sections of the Ho Chi Minh Trail, the evidence of heavy bombing by the American B52 s is still evident as the bomb craters are
very visible along the length of this route. I vaguely remember the statement that President Nixon had made that lead to his impeachment,
" we did not bomb or enter Cambodian territory ". It is believed that more ordinance was dropped here than on Berlin.
We had a wonderful weekend and will revisit Phnom Penh before our departure. at Kompong Cham Province

11 May 2014 "Glengarry Goes Walkabout" Daily life in Cambodia appears to be one of work and relaxing around a table with friends and family,
eating and holding lengthy loud conversations. With a population of some 15million it does not appear overcrowded. Always smiling and pleasant
people with many hustlers in the big cities ,that you need to be aware of and also be firm with ,without causing offence as saving face is a
very important thing in this part of the world , compromise is a skill well learned.
The bridge you see spanning the Mekong River displays a previous water line, this is where the water level is expected to rise too in the next
few weeks.
The roast pig was on the menu at a 21 st birthday party in Phnom Penh I did not eat any as I was a little fragile from the night before as we
spent the evening at a local Brazilian Churrascaria Restaurant and then Charlie and I went on till the wee hours meeting his business colleagues
and friends in Phnom Penh ,self inflicted with no sympathy.lol.
The spiders we picked up at a local market and then they were fried and consumed ,not what you would get at the deli counter in Tescos.
We are awaiting the return of our visa application for Vietnam and once we receive them back we will plan our next destination.

12 May 2014 "Glengarry Goes Walkabout" Big boys and there toys, Charlie gave me his Honda Goldwing for a runaround and we both came back in
one piece, I,m trying to coax him into letting me have the Harley Davidson 1200 Roadster ,I told him I would treat it like a night out in the
Festival Tavern , I think I used the wrong encouraging line..lol.
I get on the Honda feel the weight and balance and I am off very nice ride.
I thought I would share this with you all, these eggs are baby duck eggs with the chick formed and not for the faint of heart, but I will always
try something once and not to offend, I say with conviction I or Morgan will not try again, Carla refused as soon as she new what it was, I
wonder if Marks and Spencer will ever sell these at the Deli counter.lol.

Baby duck eggs with chick formed, apparently a delicacy, not in my book. at Chaplins Bar and Restaurant

12 May 2014 "Glengarry Goes Walkabout" Glengarry on the Mekong River.
Charlie took us out on his boat today for a relaxing time on the River. On the way up River Charlie gave Morgan instruction on control and he was
then happy to take the helm.
We spent some time lazing in the water cooling down and quenching our thirst with cold drinks (soft drinks)whilst Morgan had an adventure collecting
Cambodian oysters and handline fishing and water wrestling with Charlie and Matt.
After a few hours we did some hand trawling down the River taking in the sites ,stopping and talking with the locals who are always smiling and friendly.

The cages in the water by the River bank were similar to those that were used to keep prisoners in captivity during the Vietnam War era and Khmer Rouge dark
years, you may remember them in movies like the Deer Hunter and Apocalypse Now.
A wonderful experience for Morgan which he enjoyed, he fell asleep on the return journey. at Kompong Cham Province
