Another Day at the Temples of Angkor
There will be no history, no background information on the temples of Angkor here, just a few pictures from the many that I took this morning. The visual impact of these temple ruins is powerful and that's what I tried to capture. Of course the history is fascinating as well, but I would have only been able to scratch the surface.
What my blog doesn't show from my experience of the temples are the many tourists taking selfies at every photo-worthy spot, nor do you feel the heat or the fatigue from the bone rattling one-hour tuktuk ride to the more distant temple in the last two pictures. We thought that the distance would keep the mass of visitors away, but when we arrived we saw many big buses in the parking lot...
We often hear ourselves saying, glad we were here eleven years ago.
