This temple is made from a pinky coloured stone and the carvings are incredible and very well preserved
Back to the main group of temples about 16km away we go to 'Eastern Mebon' (a temple in the middle of a completely dry lake) 'Preah Khan' which is similar to 'Ta Prom' with all the tree roots over the buildings and walls and is pretty huge and very quiet too - another fave of ours. Then back into 'Angkor Thom' and 'Baphuon' which again is very big with lots of buildings and walls covered in carvings - terrace of elephants was nice in particular although most of the 3D trunks have disappeared. Then back to 'Angkor Wat' as we felt we hadn't really done it yet for some photos and we were intending to do the balloon at sunset but, you guessed it, it started to rain again for the next few hours! Oh well - saved us $30 at least.
Hope that was not too dull - felt a bit like a school project referring back to my guide book all the time but felt like it had to be done.
Have our last meal in SR which is not v Cambodian but in fact, Mexican with a couple of carafes of Margaritas which is lovely and feels like we are really spoiling ourselves.
