I don’t know the English word for this place, but it’s the place the army educates officers for the army.

I was asked to make at photo of the hostel I stayed at in Siem Reap, by the owner, or actually is was my Tuk-tuk driver and friend Mab how asked me, but it was the “boss-man” who wanted it.
Normally I don’t do this sort of stuff, but I thought what the hell, let’s do this one, just for the fun of it.
I said that I wouldn’t do it for free, and that my pries was around of beers to the tuk-tuk drivers that hang around the hostel every evening – Mab being one of them – he agreed and I quickly gained a lot of new friends, which is always nice.
Here’s another one from my trip to north Jutland a little more than a month ago. The name of the hotel is Svinkløv Badehotel, badehotel means “bath hotel” if you translate it directly from Danish, but the real meaning is that “bade” means to go for a swim in the ocean, and well “hotellet” means the hotel, so the name would be something like “go for a swim hotel”
The second photo from Singapore and the first one with my new Olympus OM-D E-M5.
I upgraded my Pen 2 to a OM-D a few weeks ago, I was very happy with the Pen 2 but I wanted to check out the lightning fast autofocus on the OM-D, so I choose to upgraded it.
I’m using it quiet a lot these days on my Cambodian trip, and so far I really like it, there are a few minuses from the Pen 2 but there are also some plusses.
But I’ll give you a more detailed review once I have tested it some more and are back home.
This is The Ministry of Information, Communications and the Arts (Aka: MICA) in Singapore which I happened to pass by on one of my many walks around the city center. I stood on the opposite side of the street and waited for it to clear of passing cars, and just as the street cleared this man came walking across the street, heading for the entrance of the building, I waited a few seconds in order to get him in the right spot of my frame, and just before the cars started to passing by again, I snapped my photo.
My first 24 hours here in Cambodia are almost over, and so far I really like it here, people seems nice and kind.
One thing I really dig is that you – as a tourist – can buy a sim card for your mobile phone and then be online on their 3g network all over the country for just $15 – for that you get 2.5GB data download, and it works for 30 days – a lot of telecommunications companies around the world could learn something here.
