Yesterday morning we flew to Siem Reap. We’ll be here for a few days to tour the Temples of Angkor. Siem Reap and the temples is the main tourist attraction in Cambodia, so there are tourists everywhere! I haven’t seen this many Westerners since I was on Khao San Road in Bangkok. In the afternoon, I had lunch at the Blue Pumpkin, got a massage, and then swam at the hotel pool.

We toured the Angkor temples all morning and part of this afternoon. The temples are amazing. It’s hard to describe. They’re huge and have been there for centuries! And they’re so detailed! The entire temple area is huge! And there are over a thousand temples that at one time covered 400 square miles. OK, enough talking, here are some pictures.
