Oh happy days are here again! I think we found them!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Siem Reap Town, Cambodia
An Amazing Race
USA | Sunday, 4 May 2008 |
Sure, the highlight today should have been the magnificent visit to Angkor Wat, but I'll be the first to admit I was a little obsessed with the filming of a certain, unnamed reality show that airs on Tuesday nights on CBS, that features pairs of people adventuring on a global scavenger hunt. I think you catch my drift. I even got filmed helping one of the contestants find her clue and signed my life away to CBS, or at least signed away any shot of royalities from a brief glimpse of fame! We'll definitely be watching when the new season starts to see if we can spot ourselves in the "travel documentary" that two of the contestants said they were in
We arrived in Siem Reap a mere 13 hours after leaving Ho Chi Min City by bus, with a brief stop in Phnomh Penh for a little monsoon and a side of lunch. We settled in the "popular" guest house to rest up for our big day of temples.
The temples truly are spectacular, and even more so when you think of how they were constructed so long ago. We had our private tuk-tuk driver taking us around, and we ended the day watching the sunset from top of a hillside temple, the highest point the region.
