Wham! in Cambodia

Okay, so it was a few months ago, but Andrew Ridgeley, half of the 1980s pop duo Wham! was in Cambodia for a culinary and sightseeing tour and the story of the trip is revealed in today's Telegraph in the UK. I've no idea why the article took so long to surface. Read all about the tour in this piece by Richard Strange here. The tour party also included Rick Stein's head chef St├ęphane Delourme and a gala party at Pacharan was the climax of their tour. Stein himself followed a few weeks later, filming for one of his food shows.

Those folks at WWF and their Mondulkiri protected forest are certainly getting their fair share of press coverage. The Independent in the UK ran a story yesterday about the increasing numbers of wildlife to be found in the northeast, though when I was there, they were bloody difficult to spot.
