Angkor Wat

Angkor Wat really is magnificent. We woke up early (5am) and pedaled our little hearts out to watch the sunrise at Angkor Wat. Unfortunately, we underestimated the distance from our hotel to Angkor and also got a tinsy bit lost. We missed the actual sun breaking the horizon, but still had beautiful views of the early sun and morning light. You cross a huge moat and courtyard to reach the temple and the lotus ponds in front of it. We admired the sky and the views before walking inside and around--the place is huge, three levels, each surrounded by large covered galleries and a series of intricate wall carvings. Again we have many, many pictures which don't do justice to the temple (or its enormity)--here are our favorites (we couldn't decide which of the front views we liked best :)

Angkor Wat es impresionante. Nos levantamos a las 5 de la manana y pedaleamos y pedaleamos para ver la primer luz del dia en el templo pero nuestro esfuerzo no fue suficiente. Pero aqui abajo les mostramos nuestras fotos favoritas del la vista de Angkor Wat (la misma vista, otro vez y una vez mas).
