The things happened once I get down from tuk-tuk at Aranyaprathet border. I reached there about 10.55am. It was hot and humid as usual. Me and Clare was delighted to accross the border as we were planning to be in Cambodia before 12.00noon where I supposed the border gonna packed up with travellers who came with package through Khao San Road agency to enter the Poi Pet border. We made it up before noon, yeah!.... we've been happy for a while.
It is quite easy to get your passport stamp over the Poi Pet border. I have done the visa requisition just for about 5 minute time. Amazing! No doubt but however before I got it done I had been through with some small argument with the Visa assistant who were asking me 1200baht instead of 1000baht.
Funny though, I was just making my bloody face innocent and I just say 'I dont have money to pay your tips'............
Both of us was planning to walk a little farther out of the bother at first when those local Cambodian guy who following us since in Thai border seems doesnt show any reaction of giving up to let us free looking for transportation beside they just following us until the deal is done.
Finally, we cant get rid off this circumtances and we have no choices and we get on the pick-up truck where the pick-up full of dead chicken and half dead bird were hanging around on the back of the truck where I just found out that they were putting my back pack just right on top of the dead pig. yearrghhhh!!!
Unique Suggestions: We are not even get to Battambang straight away eventhough we had made the deal at first. They make us changing trucks and pay more money for the other transportation. That is really F****d up in the head. They really get us into nerve which we had always went to arguments. Everything settled, yeah,... thanks god!
The road as bumpy as ever. In the middle of the way to Battambang, rain had approching the Cambodia earth and the peoples on the back at the pick-up truck was showering by rain. Pitty them!
I could not even sleep eventhough I pretty sleepy that time. Both of us were sitting at the back sit. Damn! we are 6 of us sitting there instead of 4 persons were allowed as usual for a car in my country. I tell you, I could lied down in bed for two days just for having a back ache, butt-ache and everything is ache.
Finally we arrived at Battambang at 4.00pm. Cool! Arrived before dawn just what I expected!.
Fun Alternatives: Alternative- perhaps just grab the offer without any question. But no argumenebt no fun, sometimes.
P/S: The picture captured from Poi Pet border. Cambodia Immigration is on the left side. I dont believe that I was already been there. wow!
