Pakse, Laos to Siem Reap, Cambodia

We have gone from one lovely country to another.  Although instead of the quiet calm that the Laos people exhibit, Cambodians are incredibly friendly and engaging.  Granted Siem Reap is a bit of Disneyland for adults, but mostly because the infrastructure is so developed and the city well manicured thanks to the tourism dollars. Still it was nice to see Cambodians also visiting and taking pride in their great temples. Maybe we’ll encounter something different in Phenom Penh tomorrow.  For now, we enjoyed a lovely 3 days here, $1 street food, beautiful temples at Angkor (more coming soon!), and country, despite its haunting recent history, recovering well.
