The Winter Olympics are a good idea. A better idea would be having the chance to
watch them. For couch potatoes able to afford the luxury of having 50 channels on
cable TV here in Phnom Penh, more than a few surfers noticed that no live coverage

can't watch the Olympics then what's the point!

of circulation in the early 70s, track down Charlie who, along with a few other old-timer
riverfront denizens, has moved from the Pink Elephant around the corner to The Rising
Sun. The senior citizens say there is too much competition with tourists for prime
seats at the Happy Herbs/Pink Elephant street side café jamboree.
The Hong Kong Hotel, the one that was bombed last July, has been renamed. It is now
called the Big Luck.
The Malaysian Business Council of Cambodia knows how to get the job done. At their
latest members round-up the highlight of the evening was a transvestite fashion show.
The guys in drag had a swooning audience throwing kisses and howling for more (or
was it less).
