Media prostitute

I need to be more careful. Friends have already accused me (jokingly I hope) of being a media prostitute and then whatdoyouknow an article, 'Tourism, with a community twist' in today's Phnom Penh Post not only carries some quotes from me but also my picture! Chris Shay was part of the FAM trip to Sambor Prei Kuk last week and his positive write-up for the daily PPP about the efforts being made to create community-based services at Sambor appears today. I'll repost it a bit later. I didn't even know he was taking the photo - honest!

Here's my photo of the same group of children

...I just hope that you didn't show the lovely kids your recent girlbar-experience-without-shirt pics, my friend :-)

Why do you think the girl with her hand over her mouth was laughing so much at the funny foreigner without a shirt!...
of course I have deleted all evidence of that 'never to be spoken about again' incident in which you caught me during a rare lapse in dignity.
I must remember to delete that blog post as well...

So you write about Sambor Prei Kuk for the sheer love of it, while someone else on the same trip publishes a story from the same outing, citing your text to boot. Hmm.... we need to monetize your writing, Andy. You're putting so much effort into it, why not get a little dosh to boot?
