lightning over the Mekong River in Kratie, Cambodia

From Siem Reap we took a (too) adventurous bus to Kratie, where we found an acceptable little inn. Kratie was a nice base for some daytrips in the surroundings. One night we spotted some amazing lightning over the river, as you can see on the cover photo of this album! Kratie is a nice and quiet little provincial town from where we made some excursions through the surrounding area. We where based near the central market. The area was quite a mess at the time, with large holes in the street to fall in. In a café we watched a football world cup game with the Dutch team playing, amidst tens of Cambodian men, which was very interesting. Especially considering the fact that everybody almost unanimously favoured our team.
