I can see this entry, but I'm not sure that you can, so I'm re-posting it:
Today and tomorrow we're touring the Angkor Wat complex. This was a long day and I'm wiped out, with another early rise tomorrow, so this is more in the way of a placeholder to catch up later. We visited Angkor Thom and Angkor Wat today; Bantey Srey and Ta Phrom are tomorrow. We lunched at Paul Dubrule Hotel and Tourism School, a privately funded training school. Dinner was at La Noria, where we enjoyed a shadow puppet program and traditional dances by orphans from Krousar Thmey.
I'm having great conversations as I get to know the other trip participants. Some took place on an elephant. More later, including an answer to Lucretia's question about orphanages.
