In The Jungle, The Mighty Jungle

After a long but shockingly punctual bus ride (possibly the first bus to ever arrive on time in Cambodia?!) I've arrived in Sen Monorom, the capital of Mondulkiri province. My accommodation (which I am sharing with a German girl I just met) consists of a bungalow with wooden walls, a bamboo floor and a thatched roof, situated right at the edge of a massive forest with trees as far as the eye can see. Apart from the eight-legged visitor we had in our room last night (see the above photo) the atmosphere here is heavenly.

Tomorrow I'm off to the Elephant Valley Project, about 11km outside of town, where I'll be volunteering for a few days. From what I've read online it sounds like an ethical and worthwhile project but the Khmer owner of my guesthouse says otherwise, so I'm looking forward to seeing what it's like for myself!
