There’s a really mysterious note on my 8 February 2001 page, regarding an encounter in a restaurant in Phnom Penh.
This is what I wrote:
…take a taxi to Le Royal for yards of beer and then Laguna Restaurant for duck soup, steamed fish, chinese broccoli and rice. Met “Nigel”, a Greek from Notting Hill who owns the place and whose sister is about to marry into the royal family – remember where you heard it first!
Intriguing, but sadly I have no recollection at all of the encounter with “Nigel”. Janie similarly can only recall the yard of beer at Le Royal, drawing a total blank for the second part of the evening.
So if anyone out there who knows/remembers Laguna, Nigel and/or his royalty-bound sister stumbles across this piece, please leave a comment with more details and put us out of our misery.
The only photographic evidence we have of the entire evening is the yard of ale photo (above) and some scenic photos of the view from Le Royal, see below:
