|The fine levied on me for overstaying my visa Cambodia|
"Your mission is over. You go!"
Those were not the words anyone would want said to them after 20 years of service, half an entire working professional career in Cambodia, but those were the final words in impeccable English delivered by the grim-faced Immigration Official, a senior uniformed and well-decorated Police Chief, at Phnom Penh Airport on 23 February 2018. I had to pay my fine of US$220 to him for the privilege too. That is more than a week's of my UK state pension, the source of income that enables me to continue to give voluntary support to causes in Cambodia.
