So, today will an short entry as well. This is primarily because I have been having very little to no human interaction, so the entry is pretty much just about what I did. This morning I woke up at 4:00 am, so that I could go watch the sunrise at the Angkor Wat. The place was pretty crowded. In addition to the crowds who had come to see the sunrise, there were additional people who had come to participate in the International Yoga Day. ...
