This week has been very busy. We are finishing up loose ends to prepare for leaving Cambodia for 6 weeks. Additionally we have a South East Asia conference to attend this weekend. We will leave Phnom Penh today at lunchtime for a 3 hour motorbike ride to the conference location, returning on Sunday afternoon.

Therefore there is not much report this week. Although there was one funny thing...

This morning as I unlocked the gate to leave the house I heard a strange noise. I couldn't quite work out what it was but as I swung open the gate I was met by this just three yards in front of me.

I just about kept control of my bladder though I may have made a noise as the pig was startled and ran away into the field next door (where I took this photo - from a distance!). A magnificent animal indeed but I'm happy enough for my engagement with them to be limited to bacon butties!

I just hope that this isn't a further addition to the menagerie downstairs, which currently consists of seven dogs and two cats !
