The other day I came across an email from my friend Karen. She'd sent it to me a few days before I left Melbourne for Southeast Asia, and in it, she issued a stern warning: Do not, under any circumstances, set foot in Cambodia. You can only enjoy it from the comfort of five-star accomodation, and the men are "sexual predators."
