We’ve been having a ton of fun wandering around temples, haggling at markets, eating amazing (and cheap!) food, and exploring Siem Reap. We get back to the hotel too late each night to do much more than charge the camera batteries amd tumble into bed–no time for even a massage!–but it’s been a marvelous experience.
Today’s Alex’s birthday, which we started with sunrise at Angkor Wat and an elephant ride from the South Gate of Angkor Thom to Bayon. Now we’re having brunch in town, about to hunt for a monkey king statue and then have tasty birthday treats at a local cafe. Tonight, it’s a Vegas-style show based on Khmer legends, then dinner at a local fancy restaurant. Tomorrow we fly back to Bangkok en route to Phuket. Phew!!
