    This looks like a grab bag version with a variety of snakes.

    For lunch I usually hit the salad bar.
    1AD2834D-9EE5-44EC-8E91-7A4E2756F8BF.jpeg
    And then a nice entree. Service was top notch. The entire staff must have memorized our names because they would greet us by name every day.

    House where the movie The Lovers was based. Never saw it or read the book. Chinese dude and French school girl fall in love. Today we call it pedophilia.

    Neat old house though.

    Specially trained attack guard chickens. Chickens and dogs all over the place in the country side. I’m surprised the dogs don’t eat the chickens.

    Next day started with a rickshaw ride around a small town. This dude earned his money hauling my ass.

    Fresh fruit transport.

    The sweetie who smiled at me. They love light/white skin so the women often bundle up even when it is warm. Socks and sandals made me laugh.

    Scooters often took over sidewalks as parking lots.

    When all you have is a scooter, you make it work.

    Visited the house of Mr. Nom who answered questions via interpreter. He’s a farmer.

    Very modern but a huge gap between the haves and have nots.
    5CFD0671-F904-4390-BC96-F89F9DDEA0F0.jpeg
    Started next day with a cyclo ride around the city.

    Lots of temples and other ornate buildings. Cambodia attacked Vietnam after our Vietnam War and Vietnam handed them their asses. They captured the capital and occupied a huge swath of Cambodia for about 10 years. Most Cambodians don’t like the Vietnamese.

    Scooter parking.

    Very ornate.
    E26948D6-6155-426D-B1B0-650D14E54900.jpeg
    Shrub trimming design reminds me of an exhaust plug.
    F62D4029-49BE-4848-A5CD-47307EE21583.jpeg
    Naga the multi headed snake. Odd numbers are good luck in Cambodia.
    1BEADCF1-71FE-407E-9BDA-93D1D6755E63.jpeg
    Lots of out buildings. This was built by the King of Siam at the time and was the basis of the musical the King and I though the love story portion was made up.
    49CDB728-24CE-42FE-B730-B433C2464294.jpeg
    Looking up to the throne room.

    The Kings personal gate.
    682D9AFD-6092-45FC-A91C-99D32B14DFF5.jpeg
    Special building to aid the king in mounting elephants. Elephant pulls up and king steps onto it from the 2nd floor doors. Current king is single, in his 60’s, never married, and is a trained ballet dancer. Not that there is anything wrong with that....
    4BAF09DB-3C93-4D51-A8FB-D47C84300B15.jpeg
    Flag signifies that the king is indeed in his royal residence.

    0A28B134-372F-4648-9014-5A3788203B9B.jpeg
    Mini spirit house. Very common at peoples houses even in the country to provide a place for the spirits to live other than your actual house.
    2CBA1E37-097C-4990-ADD7-375369F15897.jpeg
    Monument to a previous king. Original statue was of Napoleon but to save money the Cambodians just put a new head on the old statue.

    I try not to judge, but I don’t want to go to a bar with grandmotherly strippers. Or do I????

    Took this because the guy on the back had a helmet on. Quite rare.

    On to a stop at one of the Killing Fields site. Pol Pot and his pals killed thousands of Cambodians here and at other sites in the country. Major douchebag.

    Various mass grave sites marked.

    This was a mass grave where everyone was decapitated with no heads to be found. Theory is that these were some of his own soldiers who refused to participate in the atrocities.

    Tree that the literally swung children against to kill them. Almost all of the killing was done without firearms. Most common was beating/bludgeoning to death. Unbelievable that this occurred in the 1970’s.

    Various human bones still litter the site. They make you stay on raised boardwalks.

    Yep. Bones. Everywhere.

    Iconic monument filled with the skulls of victims. I opted not to go in.

    Visited a school that Pol Pot turned into a prison. These are the remains of the last dozen or so victims discovered by Japanese journalists after the city was emptied by force.

    Back in town I witnessed these three gals on a scooter run into the tuk tuk. No damage and everyone went on their merry way.

    Most locals fuel up like this. Mama-san is topping him off from the soda and booze bottles in the wooden cradle with what may be some form of gas.

    Female monk housing. These are the cheap ones. If you get sponsored by people with money your housing can be much nicer.

    I got back on the 8th but today is the first day since then that my bowels were back to normal. Lost a few pounds on the “Cambodian” diet. Catching up now to finish posting from the trip cuz this thread dies in 4 days or so.
