In Phnom Penh

Well. I am in Phnom Penh, Cambodia and the last 3 days have been an awesome experience. Over 27 gigabytes of pictures so far and some of them quite brilliant. My camera gave up on me (error 99) and I had to borrow from a 30D from someone. Canon is going to get an earful from me. A 1 series body is not supposed to break down in the field. 

Off to Cambodia

Well. Its finally here. I will be flying to Phnom Penh, Cambodia with 52 volunteers of the the Rakan Muda Programme. 2 teams will spend 6 days in 2 villages. Their mission will be to rebuild a community hall as well as install/repair water treatment facilities. I have spent the last 2 days training and preparing the volunteers and I think they are ready. I, on the other hand, am a complete mess. There are no electricity in the villages and I am struggling with choices. To bring the macbook or not to bring? I am worried about file storage and backup. I am bringing along my Epson P2000 viewer to download the pics.Then there’s the problem charging the viewer’s and not to mention the camera’s battery. I took the pains of buying an additional battery for both the viewer and the camera (ouch on the price). I am told that since I will be traveling back and forth between the 2 villages, there may be a chance to stop by Phnom Penh and I can recharge the batteries somewhere there ( I have since learnt that there is no Starbucks there).Anyway, as there will be no internet (for definite) where I’ll be going, there won’t be any posts in RightEye but guaranteed, there will be lots of pictures when I get back.
