And such a beautiful evening it was!
I could see the hotel staff getting things ready by mid-afternoon. The pool section was closed off and things started coming together. It was a perfect evening for a magical event.
Carroll, Brenda, Fay and I had been shopping earlier in the day. We found the perfect outfit for the evening and, thanks again to Brenda's amazing bargaining talents, we each bought a beautiful blouse very representative of Cambodia, and for only "five dolla". What a deal! For this tour, we are split into 3 groups: blue, green and red. Our outfits represent our respective groups. Very pretty!
The pool was decorated with candles everywhere and there was a replica of Angkor Watt in the center of the pool. White lights adorned the trees around the pool. The tables and chairs were beautifully decorated. And, there was an amazing ice scuplture of the Canadian Maple Leaf.
The food was also amazing.........something for everyone. I was thrilled to find some chocolate for dessert (I was beginning to feel deprived since most of the desserts have been fruity, or any other type of non-chocolate item!). There were salads, BBQ items (corn, chicken,
beef, etc.), ......and even spaghetti! Go figure! Lots of cheeses, crackers, etc. Very nice!
The entertainment was enjoyable. The evening was perfect. I do believe that everyone had a great time, after having had a great and relaxing day!
Enjoy the photos!
(We arrived in Agra, India this afternoon; had dinner at an adjoining hotel. Heading to the Taj Mahal tomorrow...........thinking of you, Remo!..........I'm going to upload these photos and head to bed!)
