September 21st 2015 (Siem Reap, Cambodia)

Morning view from the taxi on the way to Bangkok airport

Arrival in Siem Reap!

So, I thought the currency I had left over from my last trip to Cambodia would cover my costs for a bit. Turns out to be less than $1. Doh!

No blog post is complete without a monk!

There are street vendors everywhere, including the middle of nowhere

The civil war and it’s abandoned land mines have certainly left its scars!

Arriving at the Wat?

From 5:30 until just after 6 the national park has free entry – we grabbed this small window of time to visit Angkor Wat

Beautiful late afternoon light on Angkor Wat (who’s that guy on the right!!!!)
