Dear Elgin,

We have had a wonderful holiday.

Our man in Cambodia (who we called James Bond – his name was something like Bondi) was excellent and very efficient.

Raffles, Angkor Thom, Wat, Bayon, were good fun – but the star of Cambodia was our fantastic day on the Tonle Sap River seeing all the birds in the sanctuary – absolutely wonderful and our guide, Kuntita, was equally perfect.

Laos – where our guide, Oan, was superb and quite a character.

Satri House was ideal and good fun. The waterfall, tour round the villages, night market, restaurants (especially Blue Lagoon) we’re very good fun, but the star of the show was our two day trip up the Mekong.

We’ve had huge fun, lots of laughs and you were much talked about.

With best wishes,


AS, Indochina, Feb’ 15
