Our Elaborate Plans

Since arriving in Cambodia after some long drives, I've been keeping busy. I ate a silk worm. I met some cool people. I've been climbing all over Angkor temples for the last three days. I saw some breathtaking sunsets and got up super early this morning to watch the sunrise over Angkor Wat. I'm safe and sound, I just don't have much access to the Internet.

Some quick observations about Cambodia, as compared to Thailand:

The Tuk-tuk are different! Instead of being self-contained they are just motorbikes with cute little two-wheeled carriages attached.

The roads are mostly terrible.

The curry isn't hot! It's spicy, and curry-tasting, but not hot at all.

THEY HAVE BREAD HERE. I didn't realize I would miss bread, but after a month without I could just gnaw on baguettes all day.

On a similar note, wine and cheese.

The wats have been spectacular. I don't want to blog about it though until I can upload pictures. I've been very lucky to have a lovely photographer traveling with me. I will say that my legs are ridiculously sore from climbing all the steep, narrow steps up and down temples all day.

I will have better access to the Internet at some point. I'll probably be in Thailand again sometime next week, but that doesn't mean that I'll have regular Internet access again.

  1. Hi cutey pie. I misses you, but am glad you're having a good time. All is well here, just working and trying (not very hard) to get this place a little cleaned up.
