This is in Vietnam now, getting a drink at a cafe in Hoi An, on the central coast of Vietnam. Unfortunately, I didn't get any pictures between where we entered Vietnam and here, crossing the phenomenally beautiful central highlands. We started to get a lot more lazy about taking pictures toward the end.
Yes, as the location thingy says, oliver and I are back in the states. We've actually been back for two weeks. I have already seen many of you reading this, but I wanted to close the blog with one final entry. Since it has been an embarassingly long time since we've had an entry, it would take forever to talk about it all, so I'm just going to download a bunch of pictures of our last month, with somewhat extensive captions to explain them. I'm doing this from my home computer, so all of the pictures are mine (sorry oliver).
In brief, though, in Cambodia we went north to Anlong Veng, the old stronghold of the Khmer Rouge and hired motorbike drivers to take us to Prasat Preah Vihear, a seldom visited temple a few hours away. Then we returned south to Siem Reap, and cycled around the ancient temple complex of Angkor, which is THE thing to do in Cambodia, and often the only thing tourists do before leaving the country. We then bused to Phnom Penh and hired motorcycles for six days to explore southern Cambodia before going to Vietnam.
In Vietnam we lazed our way
Going to Prasat Preah Vihear
As mentioned in our last blog, oliver and I went with our friend Helen to a small town called Anlong Veng and hired motorbike drivers for a day to see the rarely visited ancient Angkor temple Prasat Preah Vihear. The road was coated with red dust, and soon we were too.
up the coast, got clothes tailored for us in Hoi An (Oliver's silk lined suit cost $70, very cheap!), and ended in Hanoi. And ate lots of Pho (noodle soup) and drank thick Vietnamese coffee.
I hope you guys all enjoyed the blog, as infrequent and occasionally unpictured as they were. Thanks for leaving comments, sending e-mails, and sending love.
