Around the temples

Location: Siem Reap, Cambodia

This shows the enormity of the Bayan tree roots that have slowly engulfed the temples over hundreds of years.

There are many bald old ladies offering incense to the tourists for good luck as part of the Buddhist tradition. Note the small piece of mandarin at the top of the photo (and the money!) as offerings to Buddha.

Yummy lunch... Hey Ryan does this remind you of India (vegetables in soup with egg) ?

There is restoration work at many of the temples. Note the boy selling postcards to Ron... they're everywhere!

Landmine victims playing near the entrance to Preah Khan. These musicians all looked very sad.

A break between temples - sightseeing is hard work! It was so hot too. Siesta time is part of the culture here and in Vietnam. People start work early and rest for about 2 hours in the heat of the day. I think Ron would like to live here!

Showering Cambodian style at a house near the entrance to Preah Khan.

The man in the orange is blind, has no arms and only one leg... very sad.

Ron with his head up a tree root (note the size) !!! it looked like an elephant's trunk!
