Announcing the Debut of Rucksackwanderer.com!

My new website is up and running thanks to the patience of Ryan Libre and lots of help from the professionals at Strangecode hosting in Chico, California. Burning incense and chanting over the wireless router in Sihanoukville can't have hurt either.

Be the first - and I mean the very first - to check out www.rucksackwanderer.com and tell me what you think!

A new site won't mean the death of this blog - at least not right away. Expect frequent posts over the next month, which I'll spend with a pot of tea and my laptop in the Starfish Cafe in Sihanoukville, writing the Cambodia book.

Impoverished farmers are marching through the heat and dust on the new road to Koh Kong to ask for land from the provincial government. Ryan and I are setting out on bikes this afternoon to meet them. Last week, our big story was joining a Cambodian-American man who fled the Khmer Rouge for his first trip back to his village in 33 years. Poignancy, awkwardness and hope.
