Angkor Wat (heavy on the photos!)

There is no wonder Angkor Wat is one of the 7 wonders of the world! 
We spent 3 days exploring it, by bike. 
Thats over 60kms of biking. Yeah. 
It was so worth it though, the ruins were impressive! 
Allow me to share Angkor Wat with you:
Sidenote: This is the 3rd world wonder we have seen in 4 months (4th, if you count Ha Long Bay, which is one of the 7 natural wonders of the world.) 

I love this tree! Its taken over this corner. I love how man builds things, but eventually, the earth takes it back! 

I got to know this bike quite well! 

Andrew sprinted up these stairs, that crazy man! See him at the top?

In Angkor Thom, the "Elephant walkway"

Our trusty bikes! 

Angkor Wat! Its impressive, but also under construction! Nothing like a giant green tarp to ruin the view! Oh well, you cant stop progress! 

The view of Angkor Wat from afar. We hiked up some mountain, we were hot and sweaty! But it was worth it! 

These spider webs were everywhere and they all had the same giant spider in it! There were literally hundreds around us! 

This picture? It wasnt skill that took it, its just that beautiful there! 

Oh hey there little lion man! 

Andrew jumped on an elephant friend. Dont tell on him please. 

Nothing is as refreshing as cold coconut water on a stifling hot day! 

We also enjoyed Siem Riep. Its a busy town, full of tourists, but you can still find "cambodia" there. We made friends with some of the locals, including this little one. 

We wandered through the local market...

Enjoyed some local, strong coffee...

looking at local artifacts...

and enjoyed the sun! 

In other words, we had a blast! Angkor Wat was an incredible place to see!
