Never in my life did I ever expect to see the ancient temples of Cambodia's Ankor Wat with my own two eyes. But I did.
Nor did I realize that there are other temples in the area, each with their own special brand of charm. But there are.

And not in a million years did I expect the people of this tiny country to be so full of big brown eyes, easy laughter, and good natured hospitality. But that is exactly what I found.
Oh, Cambodia! You're entirely full of surprises.
