Tasty Dog in the Kingdom (Getting around town)
Temples, Traffic and Tasty Dogs: A few days in the life of Cambodia

Tasty Dog in the Kingdom: This Cambodian Life #42.  Delilah gives a rundown on some of the vehicles that you will find on your visit to Cambodia.  In this episode, you can hear why you just might want to purchase a double seat in a public taxi, how to hail a mototaxi in Cambodia (the short answer, you don’t really need to, they find you), and how mototaxis are still your friend, even if you are wearing a skirt.   At the end, you get a history of the Japanese Friendship Bridge given by a stewardess on the bus.

The music is something you’ve heard before, from Cambodia Rocks Volume 1, it’s the Ciclo song, very much in keeping with the transportation theme.  If you listen carefully to his first couple of phrases, you get to hear how to say: Turn Left and Turn Right in Khmer, which is very useful on a motorbike taxi.

Get your helmet on and your rocks off.  Take a ride through Phnom Penh with your latest and best buddy with whom you entrust your life, the motodup, and Delilah Marie as she holds the camera in one hand and grabs onto the seat with the other.  Please note, this is a leisurely Sunday morning.  Just wait for the real rush hour commute….

Tasty Dog in the Kingdom: This Cambodian Life #12.  Count yourself lucky as a stenchcast from Cambodia is not coming your way soon, Delilah covers parks and greenspace – and the coolest thing to see in the park in the middle of town, the ubiquitous plastic bag makes its presence seen, felt and smelt and why she spent two years peeling off price tags from wine bottles.  Also featuring a P.S. where Delilah tells you what that damn chicken from #11 is and followed by a walk in the park.

The opening music was chosen because I could read the title, which translates to: I do everything for love.  (Eat your heart out, Bryan Adams), but then I noticed that songs # 12 and  #13 had the same title.  Hmmm.  I’m stumped.  So you have the song behind door #12.

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.

The opening music, coming from the archives of Cambodia Living Arts Master Musician’s Project, is Sinat Nhuck playing the traditional stringed instrument the ksai diew.
