    The Classic Khmer Adventure On Wheels-Cambodia's Bamboo Train

    in Travel

    I was staying in Battambang, Cambodia. While I was there I had to visit one of the area’s most famous attractions, the bamboo train. The bamboo train gets it’s name from the  bamboo deck or floorboard used that rests on top of the wheels that can transport anything from chickens and rice to people. In Khmer it’s called a Lorry and has been used since the Khmer Rouge shutdown of most regular train service in the country.  


    The Bamboo Train Station. Now where is the first class lounge? I could use a bloody mary about right now! Waiter?  Actually the place is quite charming and surprisingly not touristy feeling at all. At least not at the starting point in O Dambong, about 4 km from Battambang.


    The bamboo train solves the biggest problem of a single track train line. What do you do when two trains meet from opposite directions? In the case of the bamboo train? Simple-move one off the track. This experience alone makes this one of the world’s all time great train rides.


    A little heavy on the photo gear I know but I’m a one man show right now.


    Farewells from the departure crew and we’re off. 


    The bamboo train was not the first flatbed type service in Cambodia. During the civil war of the 80’s and 90’s flatbed trains were used as mine sweepers ahead of the rest of the train. Service was free, risky but popular. 


    And here we go about 3 minutes into the ride and our first stop. Wow, now that’s taking service station to the next level. The first lorries or bamboo trains were actually hand driven with a pole, kind of like an Italian gondola. Small motorcycle or tractor engines, like this one were added later. The wheels? They’re actually from abandoned tanks! Yes get your ass off the deck so I can do my job, thank you! Excerpts from "Great Train Rides Of The World-Cambodia's Bamboo Train".

    Our Corrupted "Grand Juries"

    in Politics

    Our Corrupted Grand Juries.


    We have a stellar lineup tonight to help us understand how the Grand Jury system has been turned from “The Peoples' Jury”, one that stood between the people and government tyranny into a rubber stamp at under the control of the government.


      The danger to our liberty can not be overstated for the Jury- Grand or Trial is the base apon all others stand. Destroy it and we are again Subjects instead of a free people with inalienable rights.


     Tonight we have as guests:


     Dr. Roger Roots, J.D., Ph.D. Attorney and Founder, Fair Procedure Initiative, and nationally recognized criminologist, legal scholar and civil liberties activist. He is the only lawyer in the history of the U.S. 8th Circuit to ever overturn a conviction on venue grounds. Roots’ legal scholarship has been cited in the Harvard Law Review and the Yale Law Journal and been relied on by courts across the United States.


    Kelly Z. Mordecai  Author of, “The Hidden 4th Branch: A Corrupt Government's Worst Nightmare”.


    We will also discuss, The Fully Informed Jury or as some call it, Jury Nullification and how the individual can make a difference.


    Co-Hosting with me, Chuck (Smithfix) Smith, is Lorri Anderson, Blogger and internet researcher who has been often featured on “The Freedom Outpost” and other well-known forums.


    Join us and learn something, or when we open the line chime in your input or questions are welcome. You can listen on your phone or speak to the Hosts and guests at: 619-924-0883.
