Day One Day Two
Day Three Day Four

Day Two - Angkor Wat at Sunrise, Prasat Kravan, Pre Rub, East Mebon, Ta Som, Neak Pean, Preah Khan, Elephant Terrace Again, Phnom Bakheng, and West Baray
The west baray (pictures at the end) gave me shivers. Its a man made reservoir, made at the time of the temples, that was about 8km x 2km and originally an average of 7m deep. I still have nightmares of manually digging out the yard for a small driveway, how the hell did they force people to dig a baray? I'd have chosen death if it was an available option.
