Having Fun in Siem Reap

It was raining in Ta Promh temple and my cousin and I were unable to go in for a good half an hour as we waited in a tuktuk which was overpriced, but allowed for fantastic views of the Cambodian landscape.

Coming to Cambodia has helped me further my 30 by 30 resolution which I made earlier this year, of achieving a bucket list that included a fascination with the temples around Angkor Wat’s complex labyrinth of temples from eras long gone by, which so easily juxtapose and simultaneously confuse the viewer.

Ta Promh is eerily haunting because of the stones and the decay from which the large trees that have grown into the temples emerge, magestically, juxtaposing triumphantly against the manmade edifices of a past time, beautiful despite the slowly decomposing front it sits on.
