The month in Myanmar was tough travel. I decided to spend some recovery time and evaluate my travel readiness. So I stayed in Bangkok to recover from my last sickness and visit the hospital about my butt rash. I’ve been to every Asian country, some several times, except Cambodia. From Bangkok a bus to Siem Reap, Cambodia is only $10. I was feeling better, so I thought I could do it.
WE CHANGED BUSES 4 TIMES, THIS WAS THE “PATH” ACROSS THE BORDER
I didn’t know much about CAMBODIA except that’s where Unesco’s Angkor Wat is.
TAKING A PEE WITH A “VIEW”
I’m going to visit ANGKOR WAT, first. The guide book suggest renting a bicycle.
One of the more interesting temples was the BAYON TEMPLES
SOMEONE HAS ALREADY VANDALIZED THE RE-CONSTRUCTIONS, UN-BELIEVABLE (notice the missing nose)
I asked someone what happen to all the missing heads? “they’re in Thailand.”
The most well preserved and crowded temple was the ANGKOR WAT TEMPLE. It was surrounded by a mot, so the jungle wasn’t able to swallow it up like the other temples.
Their were monkeys hanging around entertaining the tourist (sorry no photos). I met a cyclist while walking, told her I wish I had ridden.
YET SHE DIDN’T NEED MUCH CONVINCING TO ACCEPT A RIDE BACK TO TOWN WITH HER BIKE
Doesn’t matter the age, everyone is expected to help the with the family needs. I captured this scene while leaving the temples
CHILDREN GATHERING FIREWOOD FOR THE FAMILY TO COOK WITH
I fell in love with SIEM REAP. I started and eventually ended my Cambodian trip here.
HOUR FOOT MASSAGES $4
I stayed at the BAYON SHADOW GUEST HOUSE. What a great place, wifi, free breakfast, access to the swimming pool , GREAT restaurant.
“SUMMER” WAS COMING AND THE POOL WAS A WELCOME RELIEF (so was the room Air Conditioning)
“GET ON YOUR BIKES AND RIDE”
Sorry this took so long to post, but again, adventure travel is work. I couldn’t find the 6-7 hour window to do a post.
