The floating village in Cambodia are actually inhabited by Vietnamese. They travel from one end of the river to the other as the monsoon comes and goes. It’s quite a touristy spot though. I hear that if you go further in on the river you get to see more authentic living. In a sense it’s good because the money that they make from boat fares and such goes directly to the residents (so they say). It’s incredible to see the resourcefulness of the human race! Although they don’t have land and live on top of water they have things like pig in a pen and even a coconut tree!

I couldn’t tell if he was giving me the peace sign or asking for $2…
My favorite drink! Ice coffee with condensed milk. Super sweet and super awesome. You can see it’s empty because I couldn’t stop to take a photo prior.
some more images taken from Siem Reap

Doesn’t this photo remind you of the Louis Vuitton ad with Angelina Jolie? It makes sense because it was shot in Cambodia.

a quiet moment to myself at angkor wat. I miss the heat
When you go to Siem Reap you are most likely there to see Angkor Wat and you’ll soon realize what image you have of Angkor Wat is actually Ta Prohm. You’ll never forget the first moment you see these amazing temples. I’m reminded of how it felt when I first set my eyes on Istanbul, the feeling of stepping back in time.It’s such a beautiful amazing place but I’m glad i’m seeing it in the year 2012 because back when this big mama was being built the place would’ve been overcrowded with 900,00 workers/slaves… I’d much rather observe it now than be part of the construction.I think everyone should go to Cambodia and see it. It’s truly an amazing place. A warning. It’s hot and there are mosquitoes. Apparently my blood is hot so I got bitten a lot. Always carry around some after-bite with you.
