Angkor Wat Sunrise

I'm sure Kimleng has a switch he turns on to make the right condition for great photography! Had the perfect conditions for sunrise. We were the first people there - had to find our way by torchlight. He told me to point the camera that way and put it on 'infinity'. This is one of the results!

Rural Cambodia

Spent the day with Kimleng exploring the rural areas of Cambodia. Starting off in a small village with houses that were quite reasonable and ending at a very poor village. I think this is Kimleng's way of getting us used to the conditions. How humbling the day was. These kids have nothing, but they seem so happy. One little girl held my hand for ages and was delighted when I picked her up and carried her for while. They fought over who could hold my spare hand and Mum's hand.

Tonle Sap (and fish for feet!)

On Tuesday night we visited the old market where Mum got a fish pedicure. 3 people helped her to the bench amidst lots of laughter and giggles! Visited Tonle Sap and the stilted villages stopping by a farm where the grandmother was so impressed with Mum's age. Visited Beng Melea with its moss covered ruins, finishing up at the night food market complete with chargrilled frogs and chicken gizzards!

Eerie Ta Phrom

Up early to visit Ta Phrom. We were almost the only ones there! Can't help but take a good photo particular when Kimleng is with you. Walked through amazing jungle to one of the gates of Ta Phrom - as good as if not even better than Bayon if that's possible. Finished up the day visiting a local Wat and shopping for bargains.

A wonderful first day - Faces & Heat!

semi-overcast 35 °C

After a long trip on the plane (and KL airport!), we had a lovely first day in Siem Reap with Kimleng Sang. Visited Bayon temple and had a wonderful look around the surrounding smaller temples. Hot, hot, hot - even Mum is drinking heaps of water!
