The mother/daughter adventure continued onwards to Siem Reap, Cambodia, where Gavin met up with us to tour the temples of the ancient Khmer city of Angkor. We spent two full days wandering through the expansive sites with our diligent, kind, and knowledgeable driver Sorn Ram, taking in the sites and meeting the local sellers. Rather than posting one mega-post, I thought it might be easier to take it all in temple by temple.
Our initial stop was the magnificent Angkor Wat, which is encircled by a brackish, green moat and two sets of impressive walls. Built by developer extraordinaire/king Suryavarman II in the 12th century, this was once one hell of a prayer center for the piously-inclined.
What fine nips!
Pay a dollar, get a pic with these Khmer gals. Don't pay a dollar, get a pic of random tourist and Khmer gals.
