We spent four days in Cambodia, and it was a really great experience. The road from the border of Thailand to Siem Reap, Cambodia is quite an interesting drive...the roads are really bumpy and unpaved. But it wasn't too bad, and after 3 1/2 hours we were in Siem Reap, a pretty small town-like city that was I actually liked a lot. That night we talked a lot to our waitress, Kerry, at a place we went and talked her into coming to Angkor Wat with us the next day. Angkor Wat is a huge site with tons of temples spread over a massive area, all built around the 12th century. It's one of the 7 modern Wonders of the World and it's absolutely incredible to see. We only managed to visit Angkor Wat (the main temple), Ta Prohm (an overgrown jungle temple) and Phnom Bakheng (a hilltop temple for sunset). It was still amazing though, and I'm considering going back if I ever have time.

We also took a very adventurous journey to Kompong Phluk, a floating village and flooded forest. We rode motorbikes past gorgeous green rice fields to a boat and went to the village, where all the huts are raised at least 20-some feet above the ground because in the rainy season that's how high the water gets when the lake floods! And then we boated past the flooded forest, which is just that, an entire forest in water. It was a really awesome experience and we got to see a real rural side of Cambodia and real Cambodians living their day to day lives. They were all really friendly and loved to see us, and all the kids would wave and yell hello as we went by on our tuk tuk. It was awesome.

All in all Cambodia was a really cool experience and I liked it a lot.

Well argued, It has alywas been an obvious argument you put on weight when you eat more than you need excercising will never reduce weight on a body badly nourished.Eating the right food is more difficult nowadays with modern habits as against old -time habits when food was made from fresh ingredients and you knew what was going in the pan and then in your stomach, not so nowadays. Keep up the campaign it is much easier to eat healthier with all that is available but knowing what is best needs to be learnt and all processed food should be put to the sword, apart from corned-beef and baked beans !!!!
