Friday Photo 41
I arrived in Cambodia on a warm April evening, 10 years ago. In the next month, my friend and host took me to Siem Reap where, for the first time, I beheld the beauty of the Angkor Wat temple complex. Over the six years that I was in Cambodia, I made many trips to Siem Reap and to its temples. Their magnificence is etched in my mind, and will last as long as the temples have lasted. This particular photo was taken at the Terrace of the Elephants. The figures around me are Garuda–mythical and majestic birds.
