Got up early and took the seven AM train for border. Also took lunch.

Ride hot, dirty and uncomfortable. Arrived Aranya predesa at three and found a bus for us. Men kept saying that we could not change money at hotel but we paid no heed.

After getting across both frontiers we sped to Angkor. Noted army preparations – mined bridges, machine gun and heavy artillery emplacements being made, and barbed wire. Countryside flat and marshy. Arrived at New Siemseap Hotel (Grand Hotel closed) about nine PM. Had chow and hit hay.
