Members of the great Princeton University Class of 1983 will recognize the phone camera work of their most peripatetic class secretary, who was only yesterday at Angkor Wat in Cambodia. I snatched these off his Facebook page, where they were uploaded (and, I believe, taken) earlier today. Yes, the resolution sucks -- we've begged him to get a real camera -- but in this case it almost adds to Angkor's mystery. Enjoy.
Interesting place, was there in July after doing some medical mission work elsewhere in the country. Scads of Westerners roam the ruins, doesn't feel like you are still in Cambodia. I was amazed at the extent of the Ankor Kingdom ruins both in the main group near Siem Reap, but there are smaller ruins scattered to the far corners of the country.
