Tasty Dog in the Kingdom
Temples, Traffic and Tasty Dogs: A few days in the life of Cambodia

Tasty Dog in the Kingdom: This Cambodian Life, #5.  Delilah Marie is on vacation and visiting the U.S. of A.  Find out what Indiana is watching out for (and it’s not a Tastydog), what she likes most about visiting her homeland, what is just plain strange and what activities one does when camping as Tasty Dog in New Hampshire.  And with all intents of doing so, she gets lazy and has one too many beers and doesn’t tape the Savage Elders, Moo and Broo, over the campfire.

The opening music is our old heartthrob favorite, Sen Sisamok in a duet with Pbain Nai (spelling is definitely incorrect) off the $2 album, The Best of Cambodian Oldies Vol 8 (8!!).  It is old, but is it the best?  You decide.

Tasty Dog in the Kingdom: This Cambodian Life, #4.  Fifteen minutes on Golden Street. Delilah Marie, in Phnom Penh city for a few days, speaks of the joys of a real city.  She stands on the terrace of the hotel overlooking Street 278, and you can hear why she calls it Golden Street and why to cover your food when the wind is blowing from Wat Lanka.

Tasty Dog in the Kingdom:  This Cambodian Life, #3.  Delilah Marie recounts the glories of a Sunday in Siem Reap, how to go on a date in Cambodia and the perils of stopping the motorbike when you are unaccompanied by a mechanic (which relates to the boring story of why a kickstart is preferred).

The opening music is a famous Cambodian oldie, sung by heartthrob Sen Sisamok (sigh) about the love he feels for the province of Koh Kong.

Tasty Dog in the Kingdom: This Cambodian Life, #2.  Delilah Marie rambles on about some of the road rules she’s encountered in Cambodia.  There are actually no complaints about the state of the roads (which may be attributable to blessed shocks) but you may learn why it’s ok to try to outrun a Cambodian cop, what a barang is, and why not to drive with your lights on in the day.
