Ta Prohm, about a kilometer from Angkor Wat, is a temple just begging to be photographed. And photograph it we did. (And then Dave photographed it some more, and Glaser and I begged to puh-lease can we leave soon.) Built in the 12th century by Khmer King Jayavarman VII as a monastery and university, Ta Prohm has been largely unrestored and these days the jungle seems to be winning. This the place to see massive trees enveloping ancient rocks and enormous root systems seemingly hanging from the sky. Too cool.
|Cutest little carving I ever did see|
|This tree branches out in a new direction. Branches!|
|I love the color of these moss-covered stones|
|Dave and a security guard thumped their chests for a good five minutes in order to hear the echo.|
And to prove that they're real men.
And to look like idiots.
|Meanwhile Lauren and I chatted in this nook|
|And also near this giant tree|
|Had to slip in a photo of this really cute kid trying to sell us christmas ornaments outside the temple.|
