Facebook Will End On March 15???

PALO ALTO, CA –Mark Zuckerberg announced that Facebook will be shut down in March. Managing the site has become too stressful.

“Facebook has gotten out of control,” said Zuckerberg in a press conference outside his Palo Alto office, “and the stress of managing this company has ruined my life. I need to put an end to all the madness.”

Zuckerberg went on to explain that starting March 15th, users will no longer be able to access their Facebook accounts.

“After March 15th the whole website shuts down,” said Avrat Humarthi, Vice President of Technical Affairs at Facebook. “So if you ever want to see your pictures again, I recommend you take them off the internet. You won’t be able to get them back once Facebook goes out of business.”

Zuckerberg said that the decision to shut down Facebook was difficult, but that he does not think people will be upset.

Motorcycle Taxi in Phnom Penh

A common sight around the city, motorcycle taxis or motodups are widespread and fastest form of transportation. These motodups are easily located at almost every corner in town. They cost about US$6-$8 per day and tend to be higher at night, with multiple passengers.

Safety precautions need to be adhered to as passengers of these Motodups stand a higher chance of being victims of theft or involved in an accident compared to taxis. Always ensure that your personal belongings are secured in front of you or between you and the driver. On top of that, a general rule of thumb is to be consciously aware of your surroundings.

Cyclos in Cambodia

A more traditional and relaxing form of transport is the cyclos, a three-wheeled cycle-rickshaw. Although significantly slower then a motodop, the cyclos is well-liked by tourists as they are less chaotic than motodops.

Furthermore, the canopy above passengers offers welcome shelter from the rain or sun. Cost of a cyclos ride is on par with the motodup.
