enjoying ancient temples of Angkor

Hello dear friends. It has been again a long while since we updated our blog. hihihihi…..

We are very good.  We left Bangkok a week ago  and are now in Siem Reip – Cambodia, enjoying beautiful temples of Angkor. We took a 3 day pass which is valid for a week so we can enjoy the landscape, ruins and people not needing to rush. Tomorrow will be our last day exploring the ancient city starting again very early – around 4am. I am excited to see another beautiful sunrise.

 We will maybe stay one more day to prepare for the journey and than east towards Kompong Cham where we will decide if we will go south to Phnom Penh or north towards Laos. It all depends how long it will take us to come there.

from Sisophon to Kralanh

This morning we woke up quite early (6.00am). The sky looked very cloudy and there was no sun, as Mirko predicted the evening before. But it was not raining, which was good.

While Mirko was out on his fruit mission for breakfast, I checked my email and the weather forecast for the day, which said we should have lots of rain during the day and  the evening will give us clear skies.

Mirko came back with lots of yummies for breakfast. He brought some tomatoes and cucumber, bananas and Chak Ang – banana covered with sticky rice, wrapped in a banana leaf and then grilled. The interesting thing is that after being grilled the banana becomes red so for a little while we were not sure if it is banana or not. It looked like some kind of sausage…hihihiih

For breakfast we had cold tea and chocolate oat biscuits. We ate some bananas and we each had  Chak Ang.

We went downstairs to pack the bikes, get the water and then we left. We went back to the crossroads and turned left, then we started cycling toward Kralanh, 50km away and Siam Reap, which was 100km away.
