The views in Paris this week have been nothing short of spectacular. Blue sky, cloud, sun and a cool breeze. The perfect setting for sightseeing and learning about french history.
Can you get enough of the scenery? Thailand is about a paradise on earth // Phi Phi Island should be on you bucket list. .
Você poderia se cansar desse cenário? A Tailândia é um paraíso na terra // Phi Phi deveria entrar para a sua lista de viagens. .

-BATTAMBONG, CAMBODIA- One of the toughest assignments I had was during the 1988 Vietnamese troop withdrawls from Cambodia. The town was totally trashed from years of Khmer Rouge neglect and for a guy who hates bugs-- I found the accommodations terrifying. One woman reporter even screamed when she opened the guestroom door. Inside was a blood stained mattress with a large burnt hole in the middle harboring a colony of giant cockroaches.There was allot of international media covering the lavish ceremony so I tried to find a different angle. Though the government probably hated this image circulating around the world (especially during a highly pumped PR campaign) I do think it adds a human element to the event. I was packing about 45 extra pounds back then from all the Thai rice and curry dishes I gobbled daily in Bangkok so it was a rather comical site watching me try to lift my overweight frame atop that armored personnel carrier. My next post will show beautiful downtown Battambong from the air ... Stay tuned.
