Flag of Cambodia  ,
Saturday, December 6, 2008

Well, let me start this blog with Cambodia is nothing like I expected.  I was thinking really dirty and really poor.  It has its fair share of hawkers, most of them are children.  More on that later.  But, this has to be most amazing place that I have ever visited. 

My journey starts with an overnight in KUL...I will describe that in detail when I have more than 15 minutes to spare. 

Today started with a 4:30 wake up which is 3:30 am Surabaya time.  I didn't get to bed till midnight.  So, please excuse the typos.  Made it to Cambodia was super happy that I did the e-visa.  I didn't have to jump through hoops or wait in line.  Got an airport taxi which means I was riding on the back of a moped. FUN FUN!  My bag was in front of the driver and I was behind.   I never thought I would be comfortable with this situation but I really am.  I went to the hotel with my marathon packet first.  Once again no problems.  Found my awesome hotel, which is pricey for Cambodia.  But, it makes me feel like a queen in this kingdom. 

I ended up getting a driver and car from the hotel.  I had an idea of what specific temples that i wanted to do on day one vs. day two. First stop was the silk museum, I don't know how this was the first stop.  I think he didn't understand that I needed a new cell phone card.  The silk museum was pretty cool though.  Will write more about that later...

Stop 2, the women's temple.  This will have its own blog entry.  Its the women's temple because it is so detailed that only a women could have done it.  It was made for Sheba, spelling?  Had to be the best, it was further away most people miss it. 

Stop 3, steep stair temple.  It was cool to be so high up tour guides don't recommend going because people have fallen down the steps to their deaths.

Stop 4, Jurassic park and world without us temple....Trees were growing through the temples.  It was amazing.

Headed to carbo load dinner.
