Elaborate carvings. Hot morning. Bought bananas from fruit vendors when exiting temple.
John Burgess's blog. He writes so well in the book, explaining the Angkorian dynasty through the translation from an inscription in an ancient stone written by a Brahmin priest. The (stone) was discovered in a temple called Sdok Kok Thom, located along the borders of Thailand and Cambodia. It was amazing how Mr Burgess discovered this ancient temple, when he was a journalist who was at that time, reporting on the Khmer rouge civil war that was raging in Cambodia from 1975 to 1979.
Carving of a huge boat sailing on what looked like the Tonle Lap lake. Numerous fish and riverlife carvings surround the boat.
Abundant Birdlife in Ta Phrom. Saw flocks of Red-breasted Parakeets, and Rose-Ringed as well.
Sunset at Angkor Wat.
