Aaron Update # 3

I stayed up nice and late tonight, waiting to hear from Aaron!  I'll be honest... I thought I was little Ms. Independent, and figured I'd manage just fine while he was away, but I really miss having him around!

He sent me 5 pictures to share with you guys, but they're downloading as text files... so he's gonna try re-sending them tomorrow morning.

He said the temples were amazing, and they were the first ones to enter Angkor Wat this morning to watch the sunrise!!  He said the first 1/2 hour was just the 3 of them, and they were able to walk around, explore, and take pictures without tourists ruining their views!  But then, when the crowds came, they REALLY came!  

Today, they went to Angkor Wat, Angkor Thom, Bayon and two other small temples. 

After the temple adventure, the 3 of them all went back to the hotel for a long afternoon nap, since none of them had had much sleep since leaving for the trip!  Aaron and Sam went over to the city center in Siem Reap for some cheap dinner at a street stall, where they ate fried noodles and veggies for $1.50 and 2 angkor beers for .50 cents each!  Great for people traveling on a budget!   

Aaron said the town of Siem Reap is pretty touristy, so they are going to catch a boat from Siem Reap to Batambang tomorrow morning at 6:00am.  The boat travels along this river, through "the floating city," and takes about 6 hours!   Hope they brought their Dramamine pills!

 More pictures to come... stay tuned!
