one of the old libraries
the reflection pool and tourist
entering the side gate
a few monks were present
these steps have been closed to tourists as a few too many people took a fall on them, new wooded steps have been built around the back
from the third story looking out, just as the rain came
a few statues remain inside, most have been stolen over the years
the main Buddha statue
heading back out the main walkway that takes you to the Royal entrance
we were going to wait 40 mins for sunset, but everyone on our bus was hot and sweaty and tired, so we headed back to the hotel, the others who stayed reported later the sunset didn't happen.
That evening we had a final dinner at the hotel and some Aspara dancing
dancing with coconuts
a traditional dance
the costumes for this dance were beautiful
the final bow
love the faces....
this was our last evening in Siem Reap, unfortunately hubby missed this as he got a bug and then bronchitis. No fun flying home for him!!
Bye for now.
