Vietnam & Cambodia Photo Tour
Angkor Wat Cambodia & Night at the Circus - April 28th, 2015


Another great day of photography and experiences here in Cambodia today. After breakfast we headed back into the National Park to visit a few more of the temple ruins including Angkor Thom and the location where Laura Croft Tomb Raider was filmed. 

As the warmth of the afternoon approached we returned to the hotel for lunch and some free time before dinner and our visit to the Phare Circus. The circus was an amazing acrobatic performance depicting the plight of the Cambodia people. An amazing show performed by actors that came from poor village families and were professionally trained. Now the performance proceeds go to helping more children better their quality of life. It was a great show, with many talented performers. 

Here is tonights images from our second day in Cambodia.

One of the thousands of statue heads that great you as you enter the temple area.


Tammy went to take her first shot today and found she had a visiter walking across her mirror.


Another one of the statue heads, so many different faces.


I love this one.

This artist sold a few paintings today, I purchased one from him on a previous tour.


Another one of the amazing structures.


Another temple with a sepia tone, just for something different.


The roots from the trees are the biggest part of the destruction of the temples.


Tammy captured this shot as a monk was leaving the temple.


The next few are some images from tonights circus performance.


Interesting story and very talented people.


Depicting happy times again.


Very skilled. It was a great night.


That’s it for this evenings photos, we have one more day here in Cambodia, then tomorrow evening start our journey home. Good night from the trekkers in Cambodia.
