Different sides of Siem Reap

Location: Siem Reap, Vietnam

In Siem Reap we not only saw temples but met some great people & saw for the first time the inhume side of life that has dogged Cambodia since 1979 & the fall of the Khmer Rouge army whilst visiting the Landmines Museum

....meanwhile on the roadside we met this nice young girl, Nia, pictured here with Tasha. Although she spoke no english & was not used to western people she tried to communicate with us & sat with us while Huot fixed his motorbike. It was a very nice experience & amazing how polite & friendly people in Cambodia are.

Poor old Huot's trusty motor bike wasn't haing a good day & 2/3 of the way to a temple the chain fell off! He pushed it down to the nearest house & fixed it very quickly.....

Hbal Spean, near the temple of Banteay Srei, was carvings completed in rocks that had collapsed under attack from Khmer Rouge soldiers. Nowadays they are visable by a waterfall but still retain their beauty

Her is Nia (on the left) waving us off with her friends from the village where she lived! They loved having their pictures taken & seeing them on our camera.

Here you have the equivalent of a 'transit van' in Cambodia! We see postcards everywhere showing motorbikes carrying huge loads & then we discovered its not just a picture postcard for the tourists....its real life!

Typical village houses on stilts in Cambodia.

Banteay Srei is reknown for its beautiful carvings & pinkish colour.

Banteay Srei temple is the prettiest of the 10th century temples of Angkor

A huge pile of landmines on exhibition at the landmine museum...nothing compared to the estimated 5.5 million still in fields in Cambodia
