3.16,18,19.13 CAMBODIA- THE RUINS OF ANGKOR WAT

Angkor is one of the most important archaeological sites in the world. Stretching over some 400 km2, including forested area, Angkor Archaeological Park contains the magnificent remains of the different

capitals of the Khmer Empire, from the 9th to the 15th century. They include the famous Temple of Angkor Wat and, at Angkor Thom, the Bayon Temple with its countless sculptural decorations.

Three days were spent wandering the ruins of this incredible complex of ruins. We walked through hundreds of doorways with hallways that extended at times into blackness.

We looked through countless windows framing new visions for our western minds.

We gazed upon reliefs that told stories of wars and love, of gods and goddesses

We made our way through water bottles by the score , saw a million beautiful faces, and wiped the sweat from our brow more times than we thought possible.

And this is what we saw….ruins, faces, reliefs, our team, experiences that made us smile, favorite moments, light, experiences of connection, textures, colors, shadows, and reflections.

These were three days where history met present as we dreamed of a better tomorrow.

Enjoy our view of Cambodia through ruins and new life.
