Finished up my Myanmar/Burma with a trip to Mt Popa, a real life temple on the mountain. On the way we stopped in Monkey City, a village that is crawling with, you guessed it, monkeys.
The Three Amigos had a final dinner together and parted ways the next morning, Gerard to northern Myanmar, Jennell to Inle Lake and myself off to Cambodia. Thanks for the good times guys! Keep in touch!
Began my 2 day journey to Cambodia, 2 plane rides and 6 hours on a bus. We went through some flooding BC along the way passing cars with water going over their headlights. My backpack ended up getting soaked.
Had an excellent time in Cambodia, still very poor but an upgrade from Myanmar. Visited Angkor Wat, the 8th Wonder of the World. There are fewer ruins than Bagan but the ones here have much more depth (and a ton of tourists). Some had towering spires, some with giant faces, almost all had nature reclaiming them. Also visited a village on the Tonle lake. Lots of rain the entire time but rather enjoyed it. Among the more thrilling things I did was eat frogs, a local staple. As a final note, the Khymer people outdid the Burmese on motor bike skills Photo highlights below:
Looking forward to returning to the land of flushable toilet paper
