The Friday Photo #107 – Outside Angkor Thom

Outside Angkor Thom

I spent three days exploring the temples of Angkor in Cambodia, and while there was a huge diversity of architecture, sculptures and state of repair, there was one thing that stayed consistent the whole time.

The heat.

Damn it was hot.  All day, every day.  Even when the afternoon storms rolled in the temperature didn’t drop much.

I remember standing there outside the entrance to Ankgor Thom with two thoughts in my head.

1.  Those statues are really interesting.  I should take a photo of them.

2.  I’m incredibly sweaty.  I really want to jump in that river right now.

In the end I only did one of those things.

I’ll let you decide which it was.

    Hi Dave, at my first glance, I thought those statues are just placed on top of the stones which might get pushed and fall in the river. lol. I'm planning to go here later. Thanks for sharing this picture. :)

Would you like to share your thoughts?
