From Rayong nach Siam Reap

Oct. 17, 2005 - From Rayong nach Siam Reap
Closing into Siam Reap the acres turn into swamps. The colors are incredible. Ny Nen, our ground handling agent from Cambodia Helicopters told us now is the best time to come to Cambodia as everything is colorful after the rainy season.

Sometimes the color of the trees changes completely to an incredible bright green. An just in the middle of nowhere some dwellings. Sometimes the houses gather to a little town. These towns are only reached by boat. Even if they want to go to the next neighbor.

Mass transportation
Mass transportation. The FCC Siam Reap Hotel where we were staying was fantastic. Thank you Claus Sendlinger for organizing this wonderful stay in this Design Hotel.

The elefant in the back of the picture is supposed to bring us uphill to the Phnom Bakheng Temple to see the sunrise. The was setting behind a cloud. But we met our french friends from Bagan again. It was an incredible coincidence to meet. Sophie and Pierre are from Paris and doing a tour throughout Asia. We met at the hotelbar in Bagan the first night and had a couple of talks during our stay there. That evening we would dine together in the wonderful restaurant in our hotel.

Angkor Vat
The next day belonged to the temples. The first we took was Angkor Vat. There is no need to say more to Angkor Vat. This picture shows Ta Prohm. When the French found the temples of Siam Reap, trees would grow on all the temples. Nature took the temples back into her possession. The French removed the trees from all the temples but from this, Ta Prohm.

Angkor Thom
North of Angkor Vat lies Angkor Thom, the royal city. Within its walls 3 by 3 kilometers different temples are settled, like this one the Bayon temple. As the sandstone of the Bayon temple was softer than the one used at Angkor Vat this temple is less intact. This is a lesson to learn dear colleges and investors, for eternal fame always use the expensive stuff.

This one goes to Thomas Vasold, a bas relief of an traditional cambodian apsaras dancer.

Preah Khan
A marvel, and not so much visited temple is the Preah Khan. Five terraces high, a labyrinthic magical place with a plenitude of sounds around it. The perfect place to get lost for hours an become humble towards the creative energy the ancient left us here.

Inside Preah Khan
By lowering the ceiling and rising the floor the distance towards the center becomes much further than in reality. Once reaching the central stupa, everything get close.

These colors! There is no way creating something like that on purpose.
