Reflections part 1

First of all, here are some more pictures from the last two days. Angkor Wat, it's wall carvings; Bayon temple and it's massive faces; Ta Prom and it's spong trees growing through and slowly destroying the temples - these images will stay long in the memory.

The road from Poipet to Siem Reap is 146km long. The first bend in the road is 46km along the way!  You have never seen a road so straight. The countryside is dry and brown, with no raj at all in the last 3 months! That's slightly different from your experience in the UK. The pig on the back of the bike is alive, being taken to the market to be sold; ham awaits! 

The other picture is of the dancing at the cultural event we saw last night. The dancing was mostly very Asian, but this dance was more animated and not too dissimilar to Scottish country dancing
