Siem Reap, Cambodia
What a jam-packed few days it has been since I last wrote on this blog. I don't even know where to begin so I will try to be brief with my highlights. After a few days in Singapore, we caught a two hour plane ride to Siem Reap, Cambodia. It is the exact opposite of what I experienced in Singapore. Whereas, Singapore felt very modernized and hi-tech. Siem Reap seems very much tied to the past. There is extreme poverty here like I have never witnessed. There is also much beauty and hope. I will have to explain that sentiment later. I am about to head to dinner but I wanted to post some photos from the ruins of two ancient temples we visited today: Angkor Wat and Angkor Thom.
