A Travelogue

Thursday, May 03, 2012

Angkor Wat is quite beautiful and even though we got there at 7:00 a.m., it was soon blistering hot. Still, there are many inside areas where we were shaded and cool. Our guide Lyping is excellent at giving us the stories behind the elaborate carvings inside, some of which stretch for 100 feet. 

We also dressed appropriately, long pants and shoulders covered, in order to enter the top level of the temple and we saw some tourists refused entry because of their dress. There should be signs in town letting people know what is expected. But even without signs, common sense should prevail After all, would you enter your own church in shorts and a tube top?

´╗┐Halleluljah!  Got to upload one photo but it took a long time so I'll have to wait to do the rest.
