Flying to Cambodia today and leaving the hotel at 9:00 am. Will write again when we get to a computer. We will be going to Angkor Wat today.

We arrived in Siem Reap and checked into our hotel. The Tara Angkor Hotel that is only 1 year old. The hotel is beautiful, with dark wood decor everywhere. We were greeted with a cold towel and a cold sweetened lemongrass drink. Yummy...especially when the humidity is like 85 %. We then headed to town for lunch on a tuk tuk and had noodles from a man pushing a cart on the street. Yummy. Then we took our food to a cafe and had some beer and our noodles. :)

After we headed to Angkor Thom area to watch the sunset on top of one of the temples. The temples are quite steep with very narrow steps. I (Jennifer) have to walk sideways up the steps. The sunset was covered by lots of dark gray clouds that turned into a nice down pour after we were down from the temple. Thank goodness. I was alittle scared.

We then went back and had dinner.

The next morning we were up and out the hotel door at 4:45 am to see the sun rise over Angkor Wat. It was a sight to see....although too many people were up, too. After the sun rise, we headed back to the hotel to eat breakfast and then out again at 8:00 am to have a guided tour around Angkor. We had our own private guide for our entire time in Cambodia. It was great and he was awesome.

That evening, Brent, Kate and I went to town to have massage at Massage by the Blind and after that we needed to feed our stomach's. We walked to town and ate on plastic chair at a street vendor. Yummmy Khamer food! Especially the mixed fruit drinks.

Gotta run!
