Hi Guys,

International Copyright 2016 Robert R. Howle

I have arrived in Siem Reap after such a loooong trip. I caught a cold in Singapore and once here I rested up for a few days taking some meds. Now it is Oct 5 Wednesday.....we are a day ahead of the USA and +8 hours, when it is day here it is night there, weird, Hu? Well it is on the other side of Earth.

I have rented an apartment with internet/maid service/ and all of the normal power/water/elec. I am getting things arranged for living here. I have also sent my Passport off for a 6 month visa extension. They say it is best to be early than late and deported....LOL with this visa extension I have an unlimited ability too visit other countries as I like and re-enter Cambodia as I wish. Nice.  I will renew it again before that expires in 7 months from now.

   I am making many contacts in preparation for voluntary teaching 3d animation and digital art. I find it amazing because as poor as these people are here that they all have smart phones and walk around with them like zombies...like the rest of the World does now. I went with a normal cell phone and it costs me $1US a week. Things are much cheaper here and affords them that opportunity. Only a few have Laptops or desktop computers except for the schools even though they are really cheap, it is still expensive for them.

   I went by Tuk Tuk to the local big open Market to shop. Wo.  The people here are so nice and kind and friendly, it is so nice for a change to experience this. I was here in 2008 and traveled all of Cambodia and all of the Tourist sites. I already have the photos and videos. I have started a new photo album of Siem Reap and will post them soon. I took the above photo on tuesday as well as these:

Back on the Road Again

September 2016 Update

I am back on the Travel Road once again. This time I am headed back to SE Asia starting in Cambodia. I have moved out of the US Virgin Islands and back to my home state of Texas. The loss of a great and best friend Manfred Dittrich the German Sailmaker in the USVI has led me to this decision to travel again. So, I packed up and headed back to Texas to visit my family for a month and then head out for another World Adventure.

   World Travel is what I enjoy but this time things are very different as I have a 3d animation studio and that will go with me. I have a few laptops and a backpack and want to spend some time shooting video and pictures as well as volunteer teach those interested in learning 3d animation some basic ways to assist them with building website advertisements. I will also have time to write again. I decided to re-write my 4 Scifi series books (short stories) into a full blown power packed book and Movie script. Short stories seem to leave too much for the imagination to deal with so over the next year I will work on the book. I was in SE Asia in 2008 as a tourist so I covered the tourist spots already. Time and affordable places to stay offer me a great opportunity and quiet place to write. Having made friends in all of the SE Asian Countries allows me great contacts and places to travel back to safely.

   As I have retired now with a small steady income I can afford to do this comfortably and still  do some traveling. My art, pictures and videos will be another possible source of income. I am starting my quest in Siem Reap Cambodia where Angkor Wat is located with all of the 400 sq miles of Ancient Temples. I depart on Sept 27th and arrive on Sept 29th so that long flight and trip are coming up quickly now. My Travel Pictures will be posted for sale on my Art site at:
