ANGKOR WAT IS AMAZING!
We got up at 5am to see the sunrise over angkor wat, and then spent the day with our entorage (tuk-tuk driver and tour guide) seeing the sites and learning the stories. We have never gotten a tour guide before, but considering that we will never come back to Cambodia, and considering that we would have NO IDEA what we're looking at without a guide, we went for it. Tiran and Dom were awesome.
btw, my mosquito bites are doing a lot better, and I have a good feeling that with only 8 days left of our trip, Scott and I will escape malaria free :)
and p.s. We may or may not be getting addicted to massages. We got an even cheaper one tonight- after a long day at the ruins, and anticipating a 10 hour bus ride to Vietnam tomorrow.
(Mom and SueAnn: Getting through the Cambodian border wasn't as bad as we'd heard, but once through the crossing it got pretty bad. More stories later... But thanks to a Polish couple we were able to share a taxi and arrive in Siem Reap 2 hours later. Angkor Wat is basically all Cambodia has to offer us, so we are off to Vietnam tomorrow. We're going into Sihanoukville to get Vietnamese visas and then on to the Mekong Delta region hopefully tomorrow. We have 1 week to do a flyby of Vietnam. It's too bad because many fellow travelers have spent a month there and say it was their favorite! Do you think we should extend the trip? :)
