Angkor Wat, a genocide memorial, and the Angkor National Museum

The day started off early as we met in the hotel lobby to depart at 5:15am, we were off to see the surreal sunrise at ancient Angkor Wat. It truly is an impressive place. We then made time for a much deserved breakfast. In the afternoon we made a stop at the genocide memorial, there was a very dismal feel to it. Our last stop of the day was at the Angkor National Museum. The museum contained beautiful statues and "a room of a thousand Buddahs."

Tyler: "These people have so little and are so loving, so generous and gracious, it is unbelievable! Although I have only been in Cambodia a few days I honestly feel I have learned more about humanity than I have ever before".

Just in time for the sunrise

The handcrafted detail is truly impressive

The center building was a library at one time
