Paula is a little under the weather this morning, and our room safe conspires to frustrate us by running out of power. By the time this is resolved we are too late for our planned trip and decide to defer things until tomorrow and as the Sun is still shining that's not too bad an option. We claim prime positions around the pool and enjoy a leisurely morning

. A guest from Ireland gets permission from the hotel to strum a guitar and entertain us, he has a lilting melodious voice and good guitar skills. It is 2 pm before we realise the day is moving on. After a snack brunch and a swim in the gorgeous pool, we change, refresh and take a leisurely walk along the river and arrive at the center of the famed Pub street and are amazed how much we had missed previously. It is full of small alleys with artisans shops and specialist Restaurants. We sit and people watch, noting that we can differentiate between Far Eastern people, mostly by clothing, bad fashion sense and height.

Needing to have an early night we return to hotel, enjoy a nightcap on our balcony. Next door hotel is small and has a cute pool and bar which is directly below us. Two young German boys are partying hard with loud rave music. We gamble on the fact that they will crash and burn before 8pm, and yes we are right and peace returns, bonus is our Hotel guitarist is strumming gently below our room.

Big Temple day in the morning. So far, Siem Reap is a great destination, no regrets. Lots of photos to follow.

I hope that you, Paula are feeling better. I should have mentioned at an earlier stage that there is a nice boat trip on the Tonle Sap river passing through the stilted villages. It’s rather lovely if you have time.
