Where I stayed
We left Ho Chi Minh City at 4:35 and arrived in Siem Reap, Cambodia around 5:45PM
Got to our hotel from the airport and they had us a room waiting (I had emailed them the other day to set it up). Nice room with Air Conditioning, fridge, recently updated, etc. The name of the place is Mom's Guest House.
We came to the Old Market part of town which has a trade market and lots of neat shops and restaurants. We had dinner at a nice place with lots of atmosphere. I had curry chicken and Jenna had traditional Khmer amok. It was a sweet-tasting dish that was kind of like basil chicken stir-fry from Lime Leaf in Spartanburg. Beer (local brew called Angkor) was only .75 per glass!
Back to the hotel for a early night in. Jenna's stomach still was a little unsettled too but we were heading out to Angkor Wat tomorrow for sunrise at 5:00AM. We've rented a taxi for the whole day and will explore this "ancient world" most of the day. Google it-its facinating
On another note from a previous entry from Halong Bay Vietnam:
We had a special guest in our cabin on the boat. I had purchased a candy bar in case I didn't like the food on the boat. The food was fine but on the 2nd day I wanted my candy bar. It was missing-I asked/blamed Jenna (saying she had taken it from me) however she denied it. We later found a hole had been chewed in the backpack and the Snicker bar had been taken. Turns out another couple had the same thing happen. Must have been a rat on the boat! So glad we didn't know that before we got off!
