My barely planned trip to the Kingdom of Cambodia and then Vietnam was the fulfillment of a long-time goal. Thanks to Mrs. Colaco in 9th grade history, I’ve always wanted to go to Angkor Wat. This was the first temple we visited in the temple city of Angkor Thom. These photos of Bayon feel flat and vacant after witnessing the grandeur up-close. The entire place is atmospheric and heavy with history. And in the monsoon, it’s lush and quiet and green. Aaahhh 🙂

    Lucky you, it looks beautiful!
    Glad you managed to go after so long talking about it.
    Was it raining much there during the monsoon?

    We were amazingly lucky! It didn’t rain on us until we’d finished everything … it rained all the time except when we were out 🙂
