For our last full day, we decided to let history have some alone time, and just do fun family stuff. This of course meant pool time! And with the temp. once again quite sweltering, it was a great respite from the heat. Taking our cue from the acrobatic show we had seen in Beijing, the kids and I attempted to work on some of our own "lifts". After awhile we thought, "Hey, would could take this show on the road!" Then realized, "we're ALREADY on the road!"
As you will see below, the "act" is still a work in progress...
Warning...the pictures below may cause your mouth to water.
You Siem Reap What You Sow
The road for probably half the seven hours was pretty bumpy hard pan, that kicked up a lot of dust. When we would get back to better roads, it was easier to see the beautiful countryside we were passing.
After having a break from the loftier things in life (history, architecture, etc.), we were all ready to take on a monastery!
Wat Preah Prohm Wrath is one of the oldest monasteries in Siem Reap. It's history is approximately 500 years old. The temple was established to propagate the Dhama (the Buddha teaching). Another of the reasons the temple was established was to provide lodging for monks, as many who did come to Siem Reap had nowhere else to stay at the time.
