New and Old in Siem Reap

It doesn’t look like a lot of traffic, but it’s erratic, often dense and follows its own rules. I see kids on motor scooters, maybe 12 years old, weaving in and out, dodging potholes and working through gridlocks at intersections with ease. Out in the country we saw many more bicycles, mainly kids on their way to and from school. Otherwise it seemed to be only the poorest who were transporting goods and themselves on a motorless bike.

Our sightseeing took us a ways out into the countryside yesterday. My BLOG has a few pictures.

I'm a US born ex-pat, having lived most of my adult life in Munich, Germany. Cycling and photography are my favorite things.

    Thank you for sharing these photos as I will never get there to see those in person. They are all very moving and you do a wonderful job of bringing them to us.

    It is really interesting how the trees/roots have grown around the temple stonework.

    The power lines look like an electricians nightmare!

    The number of scooters in SE Asia is truly amazing.

    Great photos — thanks!
