The border between Thailand and Cambodia was a breath of fresh air after our experiences with the Myanmar borders. Though the road on the Cambodian side was consistently the worst road I've probably ever been on. Our driver (of our very small, falling-apart, leaky bus) told us of a rumor that certain airlines are bribing the Cambodian government to keep the road in disrepair. From what little I've learned about the Cambodian government this seems altogether possible. We were welcomed to the country with a huge storm (too bad for the people next to the window), but then came one of the most magnificent sunsets I've ever seen.
