Burma and Cambodia
So I'm back from Burma, and I recently arrived in Siem Reap, Cambodia. Because of government restrictions and monitoring of the internet, I wasn't able to blog while in Burma. But over the next couple days, I'm going to begin posting some of the notes I wrote while I was there, not necessarily in chronologically order. For a short summary of the trip, it was simply amazing, the amazing trip I've taken so far. The people were charming, friendly and generous; the scenery spectacular, and the religious sites really retain the sense of mystery, magic and wonder. Even in Angkor Wat, I must confess I find myself fairly underwhelmed after exploring the 3000 temples in the vast plains of Bagan. But that's all for now. I'll delve more into the stories and places and people in my following posts.
