    Monkeys in Cambodia

    January 30 in Cambodia ⋅ ⛅ 30 °C

    Today we went to a floating village and on a boat we met a monkey that was very funny. He would jump around squirming. Once he pretended to drink out of a coke can, and another time he grabbed the tail of a duck that was underneath him. Then we went to Angkor Wat and we saw lots of monkeys eating fruits. They were very funny because they kept moving the bag to see if there was more fruit inside. When we were leaving we saw a monkey sitting on another monkey’s butt and he was itching. I wish we had a picture of that! A different day when we were in the car we saw some baby monkeys and big monkeys running through the trees with their tails up. And there was a monkey sitting on top of someone’s car!

    January 28 in Cambodia ⋅ ☀️ 28 °C

    On our first day in Cambodia, after lunch, our guide, Smey, took us to an ATV garage. We had no idea what to expect, because we weren’t sure how it would work out. Once we got there, we met our ATV guides for the day. They told us that we would each get our own ATV, except Dale was too young, so she would ride with Dad, and that Malcolm would ride a mini one. Then we all had to do a driving test through traffic, (around the block) with a guide on the back. We all passed the test, so we could finally start ATVing for real! The two guides rode on motorcycles, one at the front, one at the back, and we were on our way. They took us on the city roads for a few minutes, until we got to red dirt roads. Most of the drive was on the dirt roads, through the country side. We had several stops along the way. One was at a monistary (same thing as a temple, I think 🤔), another stop at a small hidden away temple, and our last stop was a rice paddie field, with lots of buffalos and cows. We started our ride back at the garage around 2:00 pm, and got to the rice paddies around 6:00 pm, just in time for the sunset! The funniest part of the day was when Malcolm drove his ATV into a bush twice, and one time, he even somehow, toppled over, so he was on the ground, and the ATV was on it’s side!

    Wat Ta Prohm

    December 15, 2018 in Cambodia ⋅ ⛅ 27 °C

    Heute haben wir die großen Tempel der riesigen Anlage besucht. Mit unserem Tuk-Tuk Fahrer sind wir - Jasmine, die ich in Battambang kennen gelernt habe und ihrem Cousin, den wir in Siem Reap getroffen haben - zum Ticket Büro gefahren und haben uns ein 3 Tagesticket gekauft. Man erhält einen Pass, mit einem Foto von sich, den man bei jedem Tempel vorzeigen muss. Mein Foto war wieder mal grandios 😃🙈 Schlafzimmerblick vom feinsten, aber egal wir sind ja nicht bei GNTM! Kleiderordnung: Schultern und Knie müssen bedeckt sein. Unser erster Halt war der Wat Ta Prohm, auch bekannt als Tomb Raider Tempel, weil er als Filmkulisse für den Lara Croft Film mit Angelina Jolie diente. Die Bäume des Dschungels ziehen sich durch die Ruinen und schaffen dadurch einen ganz besonderen Eindruck. Man fühlt sich ein bisschen wie Indiana Jones, wenn man durch die Ruinen stapft. Wir haben versucht den Touristenmassen zu entkommen, was bei den großen, bekannten Tempeln, sehr schwierig ist.Read more
