Being home

I got in last night after a nice flight from Vietnam. It takes about an hour to fly from Saigon to Siem Reap. The airport here is nice. It’s smaller and easy to navigate. Customs is fast here. Saigon could learn some things. For me having a retirement visa, I bypass the visa lines and go straight to a customs officer. He takes a photo and some finger prints and lets me go. I had no checked luggage so found my tuktuk that K arranged for me and got back.

We went out to eat and then drank some at a few places. Kind of the thing to do I guess when I get back. Now the morning is about some room coffee and soon a shower. Gonna go for a walk later today, buy some fruit. Enjoying just being home.

My flight was full of a package tour from Turkey last night. I did not see any other people besides folks coming to tour around Siem Reap for a few days. They had some tour manager take care of the visa forms and customs declarations for everyone but people still had to queue up and get each passport stamped for entry. They were in before me but I left way before they even got done.

So gonna pick up on the day to day here with blog posts and photos of my walks, places I go see, and perhaps people that come my way. Siem Reap is a pretty town to me. It is big enough I can just walk and find new streets and alleys or side streets to explore. Very nice!

Anyways, I think that’s all the news that this blog post can hold. Home and loving it. It is nice realizing while I love Vietnam that home is just an hour away and I can get here so easily flying. Bye for now. I got nothing to do besides Apple Music and reading some mastodon tootage.
