Bouncing Back

Here's the thing. If you spend the morning in Angkor Wat, Cambodia doing a whole lot of this:

Then by mid-afternoon, I guarantee that you are going to be feeling a lot like this:

And trust me, you are going to want some refreshment and relaxation, stat. 

Luckily, Cambodia has figured out how to cater to weary Westerners:

^ We did not stop here but I gazed longingly down the cool walkway and felt refreshed just by looking

^ We ate a late lunch here at Blue Pumpkin, in a luxuriously air-conditioned upstairs room where we lounged across crisp white linens and pondered the state of our heat-wracked souls. 

 ^ My small but mighty vegetable quiche restored me to life, with a sassy little salad on the side. Ice cream for dessert and I felt myself beginning to bounce back.

^ We wandered back out into the midday sun, immediately realized more water was in order, and ducked into this coffeeshop for two extra large bottles.

And after an hour or two spent in the comforting embrace of Siem Reap, I predict you will be feeling rested, recharged, and quite possibly ready to rock.

More temples, anyone?
