5 a.m. – my moto driver Tana, picked me up and we rode in the dark to Angkor Wat. in pre-dawn light – trying to take it all in – i walked across the causeway, past the crowds waiting for sunrise and on – into the depths of Angkor. followed the song – to find one man chanting – crouched in prayer at the altar – incense burning, and stopped to listen as time stood still. walked on – the silence, magic.
angkor is so impressive, and huge. worth waiting for but don’t wait too long. so many temples – melting in the heat – dissolving in the rain – crumbling beauty . if there is one place i will always be glad i saw – this is it. but words cannot describe. and photos do not capture. just go.
and then – dream on.
