  AnimeshRay / © Animesh Ray      Projet : Utopia
A motodupe takes me and the luggage to an in-town guest house in Kampot but it is too dingy.  Then he takes me some 8 kilometers out of town to a guesthouse named “Utopia” which is in my Lonely Planet guidebook.

A truly utopian setting; thatched roof bungalows with decks that reach over the tranquil waters of a small tidal river.  The owner, Max, is a German with a gray Ho Chi Min goatie.  His wife is Cambodian.  They have a daughter who is six, trilingual in Khmer, English and German, and a year old son.

I get a $8 single room.  Low ceiling—the Catholic floor, M quips.  The balconies open on to the river.  There is a moored boat, rattan sofas everywhere, a few hammocks, reflections of  a luminous cloud and palm trees on deep greenish water that is totally still between tides now.  The sunset is out of this world.  Bokor Hill is on the left.  I like this place.  I do not wish to go much further than here.  

I eat mushroom soup for dinner.
