angkor wat

angkor wat is cambodia's city of ancient temples and big tourist attraction. we spent a couple of days there. it's a very photogenic place; the crumbling temples and trees springing from the roofs. basically, i'm trying to say that we took probably 300 - 400 photos, and sorting thru the best to give teabelly readers a sense of the place without getting bored was a real challenge. but here we go: day one at angkor wat!




















chip douglas arrived that afternoon, bringing our total for the trip to nine.

look at that sky as we were leaving!

so a few fun facts about angkor wat: all of the temples are spread over an area about the size of paris. they were built in the 10th and 11th centuries, by hindu and buddhist rulers. tomb raider was filmed there. kimberly has been twice.

Those pictures are breathtaking! WOW! The places you travel to.. I can only dream. So sad that you got so sick during your visit. I would think your stomach could handle anything by now.
