Sometimes dreams we've long thought were out of reach can become reality. For myself, one of these has been to stand by the reflecting moat surrounding Angkor Wat outside of Siem Reap in Cambodia and see the sun rise behind it. That came to pass a few days ago, and it was a moving experience I'll treasure forever.
Just an intimate gathering with, oh, say about 20 busloads of Korean, Chinese and Japanese tour groups! If I had 4,000 Riel (the current value in Khmer currency for one US dollar) for every person who posed in front of it - and sometimes in front of me, as if they couldn't see me taking photos - I could easily pay for my week there - airfare included.
The morning spent climbing up and down the steep stairways while exploring the suggested portions of the main temple were also amazing. I'll be sharing more of this when I can properly prepare the pictures for you.
