Siem Reap, Cambodia

We left Thailand so that we could get all Temple-y at Angkor Wat. 

We spent the day getting from Thongsala to Siem Riep by way of boat, bus, airplane. Lots of time in the Surat Thani airport, which is always good for a relationship. 

Here's something we discovered about ourselves quickly: we aren't temple people. It's a good thing to know, right? One of the guys at our hostel was like, the temples are great. go there at dawn, smoke some weed, and just chill out. I was like 'yeah that sounds nice, I don't really smoke weed though'. He was like no just make sure you get a joint before you go, you'll love it. I was like 'totally... but if I smoked right now I would probably head over to that corner right there and start crying'. And then it was awkward and I pretended to fix the zipper on my backpack. 

One thing we really enjoyed while at Angkor Wat was watching people take selfies. This undoubtedly made the $20 we paid to get in worthwhile, the selfie game was that strong. This entertained us for longer than it should and we think that at least one of the women selling elephant pants here should really get into the selfie stick business instead or else we will. 

We woke up at 4am because stoner boy said it's worth it to be there for sunrise (...debatable)

These people woke up at 4am, too.

We put in a solid 5 hours before ditching out, mostly because we were embarrassed to go back to our tuk-tuk driver too soon. I even waited an hour and a half before telling Danny I wasn't into it because I felt guilty, it's just one of those things you're totally supposed to be interested in, ya know? They sell 3-day passes for god's sake. I mean, c'mon.

But I'm so happy I got to see Cambodia. The people here are wonderful. Children constantly wave and shout "HELLO!" when you walk by, huge smiles on their faces. I love the tuk-tuks here, the cheapest and scariest mode of transportation, which are scooters that have attached seats they pull at the back. Oh, and noodle soup! The cheapest noodle soup!
