another long bus ride and a fantastic dinner
After breakfast this morning it was another four hour bus ride to the airport in Hanoi, then a 1 hour 45 minute flight to Siem Reap. After coolish Hanoi the heat and humidity felt great. our hotel here is lovely, done in a French colonial style. the heavenly scent of frangipani greeted us when we walked into the lobby.
dinner was absolutely delicious and had the most exquisite presentation and was eaten while we watched beautiful dancers preforming folk and Aspara dances, once reserved only for a king's audience. I am tired and cannot remember the name of the restaurant/theatre.
the small city of Siem Reap is quite the contrast to Hanoi from what we have seen so far. tomorrow we will be visiting temples and I imagine we shall come out of it with a head full of interesting knowledge
