I mentioned to you that K1, (my Karen) and K2, left the “Amsterdam” in Phu My, Vietnam on the 9th of March for a tour to Angkor Wat, Cambodia. Flying on Angkor Air, she, (they) landed at Siem Reap, Cambodia and took a bus to the Sofitel Hotel in Angkor Phokeethra.
Day 2 found them up and about early, sunrise over Angkor Wat is a sight one does not want to miss and thence the tour continued.

Ta Prohm, if you think it looks familiar and you’ve never been there, Sarah Croft, (Angelina Jolie) filmed here in the “Tomb Raider” movie
and then, in the evening, a dinner show at the hotel.
Day 3, they left the hotel and were taken to the capital, Phnom Penh, where they toured the Royal palace and Silver Pagoda and having done so, drove to Sihanoukville and the Amsterdam. Karen (K1) came back with her camera brimming over with photos, 633 to be precise and I’ve had a hard time deciding which ones to download for here and then reducing their size without losing the resolution. (I have a programme for that, ‘Blogstomp’, which does precisely what I need). I leave you with a selection of other photos of their travels.
