Angkor Coming Up

I'll soon be posting some pictures from my recent trip to southeast asia where I got to see, among other things, Luang Prabang in Laos and Angkor inAngkor Thom Two Stone FacesCambodia, both on the Unesco World heritage list...

Luang Prabang in Laos has arguably the best preserved colonial (french) architecture, and you can easily inhale the past glories and imagine two french diplomats sipping tea at the balconies while the mekong and poverty float by below them (in fact I saw just that). Angkor is an altogether different story, an archeolgical site where the capitals of the Khmer empire from between the 9th and 15th centuries lie hidden in lush forests.

Untill further posts, enjoy new years eve with this little souvenir from the Bayon temple at Angkor Thom. Angkor Thom is the main city at the "Angkor" site and yes, there will be a picture from Angkor Wat too coming up ;)
