Journey's End?
Sad to read your wrap up, as it means the end of your fantastic blog. I'm showing the family the album of pix from Angkor Wat, and we're just glad to see more than the iconic shot. Have a safe trip back.

along the Mekong
Am enjoying the river with you. Thanks. Who was there in the 10th century?

Kingdown of Wonder
Cambodia have long history in the region where no one imagine and think. Cambodia exist in this land over 6000 years. So Cambodia people have to learnt from this past hostory and convert it into practise for the current.

Great album on Angkor
Every picture looked like a part of Angkor that told a story of past lives. Great album, but one that makes me think that the pictures alone can't convey how beautiful and evocative it is. Got to go to the site itself to really appreciate.

We're loving your blog!
Hi, Sandy, Cary and I have been reading all your blogs and thoroughly enjoying them. Your photography is outstanding! I feel like I am learning a little bit about that part of the world through your eyes. Thanks for sharing. Dorothy

Angkor environs
I've told everybody how you are not only going to one of the rarer destinations for Americans, but are also avoiding the typical Bangkok-Phuket-Angkor trip most would do. But there's a reason Angkor is so popular, and we're glad you're also getting to see your own corner of it. It's important to also see the must-see sights. As long as you take pictures of yourselves in front of them. BTW, Val especially loves the idea of your guide steadying Bruce.

Mekong
The French bridge is in the blog on Cruisin' the Mekong. It's in Laos.

Siem Reap
Val and I had Thai food today, and once we told the waitress about where you were, she couldn't stop talking. And once she stopped talking, she couldn't stop feeling homesick. She told us all about the tourist trip she's taken while visiting home--something about cruising on the Mekong, and the French bridges that were never finished. Unfortunately, we couldn't remember the names of the places you had been (except for Luang Prabang, which she's been to, and is, of course, not in Thailand), but we'll show her the pictures next time we go. Now we have more pictures to enjoy--looks like the digs have gotten better. But, in order to brag on them, we'll have to find a Cambodian restaurant.

Response
Hi Lyn - I'm working on the silent auction idea. As to music - they all seem to listen to 80's western music here......

Riding the rapids
Sean saw your picture of the Mekong Rapids, and wanted to know if you had gone whitewater rafting on them. I showed him your cruise boat, and told him Grandma and Grandpa go at a more leisurely pace. And their food is better than granola bars. You're right; we did miss your updates, and are glad you had so much to show us.

Thanks for your comments
Hi Norm - thanks for the comments. Nice to know that somebody besides my long-suffering relatives and friends is reading them. If you like quaint towns, great restaurants, and lovely people, do plan as much time in Luang Prabang as you can.

Sandy and Bruce, VOICES misses you!! And what wonderful photographs! The views and scenery are amazing. I'm wonderfing if you've heard any music? Should a concert in 2010 be Asian-inspired? Or maybe a silent auction item? Lyn

Teacher Discipline
That hardline teacher Sumontha shows just how far our school disciple has fallen in N. America. She sounds like the RC Nuns @ my 1955- 60 school in Canada!

Cave Trip

Travel to LP
I was in Luang Prabang (LP) for 2 days in 1972 but a few rockets were lobbed near the town, so I had to clear out to Houy Xai and back to Chiang Rai. I return to LP in Jan 2010. After your comments, I think I will reduce my proposed time Chiang Mai and spend more time in Laos. Thanks for the advice!

Special trip
I'm glad you could do so much more than hang around with the tourists in Phuket, and are getting such special tours with local people. Thanks for sharing, and letting someone take the pictures so we could see you guys.

Bruce's head!
I want to see all the pictures--Bruce's head may end up being the kidnapped garden gnome equivalent of your trip.
