On one hand, there are a number of starving people in the world, especially in the developing nations. On the other hand, many people in the developed countries feed a lot of grain to cattle to produce meat, and they are eager to have biofuels so that they can drive more cheaply because of the high petrol price today.
I talked to a man without an arm when we were seeing sunset from the terrace of our guesthouse. Even though he could not speak English, we had great languages in common. It was off course gesture. He was about 40 and lost his arm when he got sick roughly 30 years ago.
When I got at Takeo, I asked moto drivers where a guest house I found in my Lonely Planet was. But nobody knew that place except for one of them. A driver asked his friend in a computer shop where it was, and then he took me there.
