Cambodia Part I –Angkor Wat
Getting to Cambodia was quite a trip, a long train ride, then a tuk tuk to the border, then from there another 6 hour bus ride. However, Angkor Wat was worth all the travel hassle, I have never seen anything more ancient and magical. Majestic would be the word to describe what being there was like, I really felt like Indiana Jones or Lara Croft the whole time. The county of Cambodia itself is not so beautiful, very flat. However, going to the smaller cities and you really fall in love with the place, the people are friendly, the food is delicious, and there is a lot of interesting history there. If you don’t know what Ankgor Wat is then I suggest you look it up, in short ancient ruins that are Cambodians pride and joy. I was also able to stop on Phnom Penh and see the Khmer Rouge 21 museum; I choose not to take pictures as it is such a recent catastrophe. Again, if you are like me I did not know anything about it before coming here plus I was not old enough to remember what happened, but please look it up. Besides that I was able to meet some really great people who showed us around town and invited me to come back soon. Which as you can see this blog is part one, meaning part two coming soon as I head back to Cambodia to see more.
