Temple Visit Day 02
Merry Christmas everyone!
We didn’t wanted to get Wat-out (temple fatigue) thus we decided to only do temples on alternate day. In saying that, we are still visiting a temple but it on the out skirt of Siem Reap. We had to travel in the tuk tuk for nearly 2 hours. I say I still don’t regret the ride. The airy feeling was nice, seeing part of the country side and we stopped for street food where no one understand us. LOL!
Hope some of these pictures give you an impression of the lifestyle of Siem Reap countryside.
Wooden houses meet urbanisation?
I think this got to be my best find in Cambodia. I truly enjoy it and find it simply delicious even though Christopher might disagree. Yummicious!
According to Wiki: Kralan (Khmer: ក្រឡាន) or khao lam (Thai: ข้าวหลาม, pronounced [kʰâw lǎːm]; Lao: ເຂົ້າຫລາມ) is a Southeast Asian rice dish made of sticky rice with red beans, sugar, grated coconut and coconut milk roasted in specially-prepared bamboo sections of different diameters and lengths.
