Last but definitely not least, in my set of Siem Reap photos: THE Angkor Wat....
We woke up REALLY early one day to get there in time for the sunrise. As usual, there were lots of people (although the tour guide pointed out that this is considered a relatively small crowd):
We had lots of fun taking photos of the beautiful backdrop and changing colours:
The pond was a bit of a mess (quite a lot of algae) but the lilies were pretty:
We actually visited another time, during the daytime. Here's one of the guardian lions(?) on the outside:
The main entrance into Angkor Wat, after the walkway over the large moat:
Beautiful carvings of dancers:
Also, quite a lot of statues inside:
We finally made our way to the inner part of the temple:
It's kinda mean, but we were gawking+laughing at this crazy girl:
LOOK AT HER SHOES! *shocked/amazed*:
On one hand, I question her choice to wear a mini skirt and high heeled shoes to a place filled with uneven stone paths, steep narrow stairways and generally tricky flooring....
... but on the other hand: WOW O_O!... I envy her inhumanly keen sense of balance - she could probably give Catwoman a run for her money...
