Phom Penh November 27: Roll call -- Who's going?

Postby theshortestfuse » Wed Sep 08, 2010 10:06 am

Hi All,
I thought I'd start this thread for the upcoming Cambodia concert. Post here if you're going and tell us where you're coming from. I'm an American living/working in Beijing and I'll be there! Couldn't talk anyone into going so I'll be there solo. SO EXCITED! And you?

I am travelling from Ho Chi Minh. I am also on my own so any info about getting to the stadium or a good hotel near the stadium would be great. I couldn't find anyone to come with me, they all thought I was mad! or they said, 'who's that?'

I'll be going from Singapore, together with my wife, and my son will join us from Hong Kong. We're splashing out, so we got a good rate at the Intercontinental which I'm told is reasonably close to the concert venue. Looking forward to a great weekend.

I'm living in Viêt-Nam and I'm going whichever way, damn.

He's one of my spiritual masters, but I'm yet to see him performing.
He's been by my side ever since I was 16 (i'm now 33, 34 out here), when I sang "One of us cannot be wrong" to a chubby girl, one warm night in Granada.
I then asked her to do something to me that I wasn't supposed to ask at the age of 16. She said no, so I went back to my room to read Nietzsche.

It's going to be a great event, like going to India for example.
(I never went to India, because I'm a little scared of great spiritual events)

However, this one cannot be dodged, can it?

Let's keep in touch and get that fire going

That's a great post, witty, thought provoking and like a paraphrase of some of LC's songs. I smiled as I read it and smiled more when I re-read it!

I hope you have a wonderful time at the concert.
