End of the day...


After lunch we walked down the
street to the next temple, Banteay Srey.
The temple walls are densely covered with some of the most beautiful,
deep and intricate carvings of any Angkorian temple.


The next day we woke up early to drive out to Kbal Spean
which is is set deep in the jungle to the north east of Angkor.
It is commonly known as the valley of a 1000 Lingas due to the presence of the estimated one
thousand lingas, which are sculptures dug in the Siem Reap riverbeds.
Lingas were believed to fertilize the water that irrigates the rice fields in Cambodia.

Unfortunately Sonny's foot was in bad shape so
he stayed back in the little village, and he gave
Kimiko his camera for her to take pics for him.
Kimiko + Camera = Dead Battery! ;)

It took us about an hour to hike to the "waterfall,"
and when we got to the top Huyen wasn't too
impressed..."Sonny is lucky!"
