Siem Reap first impressions

Coming to Siem Reap has exceeded all expectations and beyond. You need to see it, smell it, listen to it. The town has a buzzing vibe with loads going on but in a dozy kind of way.

We briefly visited the Landmine Museum today. It tells the history of landmines through the story of its founder- a former child soldier. Just reading the passage below is a reminder of the misery of a civil war where neighbours,friends and families have to take sides (if they even get a choice).

We will hopefully see the sunrise over Angkor Wat tomorrow.museum
