I have never cared so little about ants before. Who cares that they are eating the crumbs off the counter? Who cares that there are 2 million of them in a line in the bathroom? Who cares that they mysteriously are on my laptop when I open it up? Who cares? At least they are not the giant cockroaches! Ugh!

Cambodians business dealings are nothing like Western business practices. The idea of quickly resolving a problem never entered their mind. It could take weeks to get a problem fixed. And returning a broken product… ha! Dream on! Nothing works longer than a week. It would be foolishness to hope for better. In fact, when I was talking to the Internet company about how we wanted a refund for a faulty product, she told us that we had already paid. The idea is that once they have your money, too bad! They’re keeping it!

umm...yes, so the wildlife in Florida rivals Cambodia. We've found 2 count them- 2 cockroaches, affectionately renamed 'palmetto bugs' by the apartment people so that we can't call them roaches. then, i nearly DIED today when wrapped around the fence behind our apartment complex was a SNAKE!!! And then there are the 3 billion geckos. See what you're missing. I'll take dogs and ants any day! :) j/k Love you!
