Reap What you Sew

Day 377
We were up early and both of us were in a real rush to pack. It wasn't long before our mini bus arrived and in no time we were being transfered to a really nice bus. The roads in Cambodia used to be really terrible, but in the last 4 years they have paved most of the major ones. It was smooth gliding for the 5.5 hour trip to Siem Reap. When we arrived a tuk tuk offered us a free ride as long as we would use them to take us to the temples the next day and we accepted. The hotel I picked (it was my turn) was basic but cheap and had a garden like atmosphere. There were also some cute cats hanging around.

After a snack at the hotel we headed out for a pub crawl. The first bar was called Dead Fish and had a pool of crocodiles in it. When we were done there we headed to the night market because I thought that there would be food stalls there, but was sorely disappointed. Instead I grabbed some fried noodles and veggies from a roadside restaurant.

We went to a couple more places but ended up at the bar in town called Angkor What?. After a bucket we decided to call it a night and headed back to our room.
