From PP to BK

We took our bus, heavy with all our luggage, and went to the airport in Phnom Penh.  We were early for our flight to Bangkok, so we had to wait in the lobby while people went to and fro, including one small child wearing no pants and a shirt down to his knees.  The crotch of his shirt looked damp.

Once we checked in, we headed up the stairs and breezed through security.  On the other side, in the duty free area, a piece of the ceiling fell to the ground as we walked past.  I guess what we had learned about Chinese construction in Cambodia being spotty was true.

Even though food in the airport was at least 10 times the price outside, we had a small snack and then boarded our plane.  Apparently on Air Asia instead of flight attendant uniforms they wear matching red shirts and jeans.  Relaxed and comfortable.  Before long, we landed in Bangkok, got picked up, and checked into the Ibis Bangkok Sathorn Hotel.
