“There are seven days in a week, and someday isn’t one of them”
Today was a day that I’m sure none of us will soon forget.
We took our hotel’s “Magical Full Day Adventure” which meant we had a guide for our first day exploring Angkor which was very helpful. We started off visiting The Bayon which Cole was very excited about seeing.
Then we went to Preah Kahn (note the bees nests up high in the tree)
Then we took a break in the pool to cool off as temperatures were getting close to 40C! And we had a little lunch.
Then back on the road and off to Preah Rup, where it started to rain a little.
Then lastly, we were off to Ta Sohm, where it started to rain, a lot. Like, lightning all around us, trees falling in the forest, and small streams a couple of inches deep forming as we waited for the rain to pass. We decided to run for it back to the van, which was maybe a good idea, and maybe wasn’t. It definitely was memorable! I don’t have the greatest pictures really of that part, because I was running.
We are now back at the hotel with kids playing Minecraft and me trying to get everything hung up to dry – which seems unlikely to happen anytime soon.
