Winter in SihanoukVille, Cambodia. 2010.

It's Wintertime here in SihanoukVille, Cambodia.  And it's starting to get cold!  The temperature has dropped down as low as 25 degrees (that's like 75 degrees for you Americans).  The town's starting to fill up with tourists, as the seasonal rains have stopped.

Several new places in town, including:
