A Cambodian Proverb

A Cambodian proverb I learnt-  “For news of the heart, ask the face.”

Crazy, magical, beautiful morning, I texted Jon.

My favourite temple, of the 4 I’ve seen.

Isn’t that the Angelina Jolie Tomb Raider temple? asked Spice.

Yup!  Climbed all the way up at Temple 3, because I got excited!

Then remembered I have a bit of height phobia.

I did this one as well.  Wasn’t so bad as I recall.

I have a slight phobia…so had to psyche self on the going down.

Insane looking structures, commented Jon.

Simply, simply stunning!

Heart-wrenching…

The theory behind the fall of Angkor is the water supply… no water, no crops; civilisation declines.

I got rid of the driver after this morning’s jaunt.  He kept asking for more money.

Ok, Baby.  As long as you’re safe.  Maybe enough jaunting already?

Childhood (Male) BFF texted-  Do you like Angkor Wat and Siem Reap?

Very much…it’s very different from other cities-

It’s not an easy city to like.

It’s got such a complicated and sad past…

IMG_6089

But it’s not possible to be here, and not feel.

IMG_6086

Yeah, he agreed.  I know what you mean.  I liked it a lot too.
