Day 10, Kampong Thom – Siem Reap

We started the day with a tour of the local market . . . always a fun time . . .

. . . everything is so well presented . . .

. . . even what looked like the entire digestive tract of a pig . . .

. . . including many of the organs. Not sure if you had to buy the whole thing or by the pound!!!

The vendors were very pleasant, happy to see us . . .

. . . and again, nicely presented and clean . . .

. . . even the pig heads looked like they had been scrubbed . . .

. . . then it was onto the fish section . . .

 

. . . where one could buy a fish live and have it cleaned for you, on site . . .

. . . hey, how about an eel or two for making soup???

Happy . . .

. . . Happy!!!

Back on the road on the way to Siem Reap, our home for several nights.

LOTS and LOTS of political signs in Cambodia with these two guys always included. Most of the Cambodian government are actually former Khmer Rouge military.

EVERYWHERE we went, if there were young people they all yelled ‘HELLO’. It actually got sort of tiring yelling ‘HELLO” back but they were all so friendly and happy to come look at us when we stopped.

This water buffalo looks like it is used to having it’ photo take. Posing???

We stopped at a temple for a tour and I bought emJay a nice little scarf from one of the vendors.

This temple was literally being consumed by the tree growing into it . . .

. . . the temples we would see for the next several days . . .

. . . would be in various stages of falling down or

being rebuilt.

Here was a mound being built by termites!!!

Time for lunch . . . every one got a fresh coconut full of coconut milk . . .

. . . fried rice and LOTS of fruit.

Down the road we went until be reached the city limits of Siem Reap and our home for the next several days, the Steung Siem Reap Hotel.
