I'm guessing he's a passport stamp collector. Airport to hotel. Quick taxi ride round town. Then back to the airport. Another country done.Jackal wrote: ↑Sat Jan 25, 2020 4:29 pmYou have visited 99% of all shithole countries on earth, but haven't been west of Monivong?gavinmac wrote: ↑Fri Jan 24, 2020 10:45 pmI saw the CNE article today about the naked Nigerian being arrested in Stung Meanchey.
I think I've seen other news and posts lately involving foreigners and Stung Meanchey.
Isn't that where the big garbage dump is with the scavenger kids?
Why would a foreigner go there? Are there a fair number of foreigners living there? Who? Why?
I never go west of Monivong of course. What kind of foreigners live in Stung Meanchey? I'm picturing Daun Penh as the neighborhood for Western sexpats, BKK for NGO-types, Russian Market for digital nomad hipsters, and Stung Meanchey for . . . who? Factory workers and Westerners living in $60 a month rooms? Is Stung Meanchey the new Russian Market now that Russian Market has been gentrified?
Time to call up Ta and his Tuk tuk and get exploring.
If so, it's the equivalent of the tourist that 'sees' Vietnam by visiting Hanoi for three days then flying directly to Ho Chi Minh for the rest of the week.
