We made it to 4 temples today . .wore poor Shell out . . .I guess I am going by myself
tomorrow. I found myself a took took driver who can actually speak English good enough
to carry on a conversation . . . almost amaizing.

Of slight interest is the fact that everybody in Cambodia is a trivia finatic. They ask you
where you are from and then start in on the Numbers . . . The little kids especially.
When they ask where I am from I say Älaska, instead of just the US.

I am informed that Alaska is actually part of the US, the largest state. That Hawaii is the smallest state .. .Once the kid even told me the approximate poplulation of Alaska. . .then said "Minus Two" because you are here!

The Temples truley are grand. But have a slight Diseny land feel going on because there are SO MANY tourist. Americans are so use to going to Diseny land or Las Vegas and seeing replicas of places . . .I am not sure even I am giving the place the respect that is due.



I climed to the top of the highest temple at Ankor Wat. . .WOW what a view. The other temples I cannot pronounce much less spell . . so I will just post a couple photos and call it a night. The best of my photos are in "Raw" format and I cannot convert them to anything viewable from Shells computer. I really should have brought my own. He says I may be able to get a copy of Photoshop for $2 in town . . . Can we spell ""Pirate Copy"'? : )

I may get a copy to at least convert the photos . . .





Love to everybody !

Population of Alaska
Sounds like those Cambodian kids are slight 'autistic' or even 'Savant' when it comes to trivia! James would fit right in! That little kid that said the population is 'minus two, cuz you are here'... that is sooo cute!

And at least SOMEONE in the world knows the 'real version of the map', instead of the ridiculous maps here with Alaska shrunk and placed in the ocean by California!!!

Would that PhotoShop be the 'latest' version??? grab me a copy for $2 bucks also. JUST KIDDING!
