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/
