Phom Phen, Cambodia

So I met back up with Punda in Cambodia (had gone to Hong Kong to meet his girlfriend). I stayed the first night in the O.K. Guest House. Punda had had a dumpy place on the other end of town that he had already committed to (I was carrying the Lonely Planet book). We met up with Natalie and Keith and they graciously let us crash in their living room. We put on our earplugs and blinders to use for this week.

This photo was from a trip we took down the Mekong River. Their were many more photos but you are probably sick of river pictures from Vietnam. Besides, I needed to use the rest of my space showing you my bonding with the bear day. ALL the rest of the photos below more »

Siem Reap, Cambodia

So these are my pictures from Siem Reap, Cambodia. Its about a five hour bus ride from Phnom Phen. We stayed for a week just checking out all the temples/ruins of Angkor Archaelogical Park and the surrounding area. We rented bikes for a week and just rode to different place each day. I had many more photos selected but had to narrow it down (there are seven more on log/pic 13). We started at the famous Angkor Wat (vat), and spent the whole day here. Other places we went were Phnom Bakheng, Angkor Thom, which includes Byon and is the largest of the temples. This area also includes the terrace of leper kings and elephants, Baphuon, Phimeanakas, and Preah Palilay. Preah Khan, Neak Pean and Ta Som were done in one day. Prasat Kravan, Banteay Kdei and Sras Srang were done on my last day. Ta Prohm was my favorite because of all the roots still growing wild throghout and within. This was the site of some tomb raider shots. We did sunset at Pre Rup. Good times! more »

Myanmar

So these are pictures from my Myanmar (Burma) trip. It was tough going from the time I started trying to get my visa in Laos to get into the country, up until the time I left here. I won’t get into all the negative details but I will say that this government has a hold on the people and they are not pleased. more »
