|With the fam at about 630am in Angkor Wat|
Although I know Angkor Wat is what people go to Siem Reap for, I am a bigger fan of Ta Prohm, which many will know from Tomb Raider. I love how nature just took over and you have large trees growing out of the different areas of the temple. There is something eerily beautiful about the place and among all the temples in Siem Reap, this is the one they left pretty much as is with only minor restoration. In my opinion, it doesn't really need it.
|As my dad said on twitter-Nature always wins! How awesome are all of these?|
We also went back to Angkor Thom because we promised Ananda an elephant ride. There's something about elephants that make the kid in people just come out!
|She was scared at first, but after the first banana, she didn't want to stop feeding the elephants!|

|Ananda found her souvenir- a bongo with real snakeskin. She helped me haggle it down to almost half the price!|
|Clams cooked in garlic and chili then dried out in the sun. Didn't try this, our guide did not recommend it LOL #streetfood|
