temples and floods

Chris and Brianna’s visit fits fairly neatly into thirds. The first was at the beach, the second in Prey Veng, with a sobering visit to the Tol Slang Prison memorial in Phnom Penh on the way. The third was our adventures in Seim Reap and Battambang, a trip punctuated by buses, plan changes, and water, water and more water. Water from above, water from below. But in between, there was the beauty of the Angkor Wat complex, Angkor Tom with the Bayon temple, and Ta Phram’s juxtaposition of magnificent trees tangled with the centuries old beautifully carved structures. There were also mad tuk-tuk rides through deep water, relaxing meals and the drama of a city filling with water as the river flooded into it.
