19 Thaikarl - temples have been crawled, next


we've been crawling the temples for three days.  as immense and absorbing as last time i was here.  i shall have to come back again.

we are heading out early in the morning- taking the bus to phnom phen, and then down to sihouinoukville (sp)  which is cambodis beach front town.  layabout in the heat and salt air for a few days, maybe snorkling.

the many temples of angor wat are mind-boggling.  the story behind them, the history, the people - its a lot to take in, alot to imagine.  all the sandstone was hauled from 120 km away - over 60- miles.  they had elephants for heavy lifting, but everything was done by hand.

and its all falling down.


i am in thailand at the moment. to be added or deleted from my travelogue, send request to this address. view previous posts at:  http://thaikarl.blogspot.com/
