We made it to 4 temples today . .wore poor Shell out . . .I guess I am going by myself
tomorrow. I found myself a took took driver who can actually speak English good enough
to carry on a conversation . . . almost amaizing.
Of slight interest is the fact that everybody in Cambodia is a trivia finatic. They ask you
where you are from and then start in on the Numbers . . . The little kids especially.
When they ask where I am from I say Älaska, instead of just the US.
I am informed that Alaska is actually part of the US, the largest state. That Hawaii is the smallest state .. .Once the kid even told me the approximate poplulation of Alaska. . .then said "Minus Two" because you are here!
The Temples truley are grand. But have a slight Diseny land feel going on because there are SO MANY tourist. Americans are so use to going to Diseny land or Las Vegas and seeing replicas of places . . .I am not sure even I am giving the place the respect that is due.
I climed to the top of the highest temple at Ankor Wat. . .WOW what a view. The other temples I cannot pronounce much less spell . . so I will just post a couple photos and call it a night. The best of my photos are in "Raw" format and I cannot convert them to anything viewable from Shells computer. I really should have brought my own. He says I may be able to get a copy of Photoshop for $2 in town . . . Can we spell ""Pirate Copy"'? : )
I may get a copy to at least convert the photos . . .
Love to everybody !
