Cambodia – Siem Reap

I will start with some basic tourist information, so you can get prepared without making my same mistakes. Cambodia is part of Indochina together with those states that are between Asia and China: Laos, Vietnam, Myanmar and Thailand. There are two well-defined seasons, the dry one where it never rains and the cows are very thin and the pools of the extra-luxury hotels are filled with salt water, and the rainy season where does not stop never the rain, the jungle is repopulated with animals and life resumes. In both seasons it’s fucking hot, it’s very humid and everyone sweats copiously. Your hair will be disgusting for the whole holiday. If you have curly hair like me you will look

Leggings

Let’s start with the shocking news all women should know despite not being fashion bloggers: leggings and yoga pants are not pants. They are not fashionable (we wore them in the 80’s and called it fuseaux, remember?). They are not sexy and dramatically show off your leg and ass flaws unless you’re Jennifer Lopez.

You find the motivation to do 100 crunches

Shanghai: Dumpling, Dumpling, Dumpling!

“Hey you, what is your favorite food?” “Mmmhhh, I’m not sure, I’m undecided between ravioli and lasagna.” Of course, because when you think of a favorite food, carbohydrate makes it as a master, never to be undecided between a quinoa salad and steam cauliflower. It never comes to mind then summer’s approaching and we have to wear a swimsuit, weight loss to relieve pressure on the knees, the insulin that rises. Eh no, if you think of a favorite food the carbohydrate wins. Always. “Hey you. Yes I am speaking with you, the one undecided between ravioli and lasagna, please find a black hole, a passageway, a teleport and come here in a blink, please.” I would gladly bring you
