you know you're in a foreign country, when...

* the person you meet in the internet cafe' relates that she prefers the beaches in laos to those in cambodia.
* the sign on the overcrowded, 2-lane "highway" says "please remember to drive on the left side of the road."
* you don't have to take your shoes off at the airport check-in point, but you do have to take your shoes off if you want to enter the beach-side internet cafe'.
* your new friend from london tells a story about how she once hitchhiked "from timbuktu to gana."

* your shower isn't separated from your bathroom area by anything, and the water runs out a drain in the corner of the floor.

* ronald mcdonald namaste ('nuff said). see the september 30 blog entitled "namaste ronald."

* the appetiser for dinner is fried squid.
* after dinner, your waiter determines how much you owe by politely asking what you had to eat.
* there's mosquito netting over your bed.
