Location: Angkor Wat, Cambodia

Mapbright and early start to the morning to tuk tuk around and visit Angkor Wat, Bayon and another one which i've momentarily forgotten the name of... my bad. anyhow, Angkor Wat is such an amazing castle which took around 40 years to built way back in 1111 (roughly). a story is told in the carvings throughout the entire castle. there are loads of buddhas in there, which is why to top secition is called "the Thousand Buddhas". the majority of them have no heads though... climbed this massive rock stair case to get there, also to see the stunning view from the top. heading back to Bangkok tomorrow which'll be good since im extremely low on US dollars to spend here (since Cambodia's own currency isn't worth much). going to try and find a meal for a $1 tonight!!
