I found this awesome little sign in a bathroom somewhere along the way.  I thought you guys might enjoy it.  For those that need help:
1- No smoking
2 - This is a western toilet, please don't squat on the toilet.
3 - I'm really not sure what this is all about....maybe don't wash your feet with the hose (In Asian bathrooms they have a hose with a spray nozzle on it, you know like the old school ones we have in kitchen sinks in America)
4 - Don't use the hose to take a shower
Srah Srang - a small landing/terrace type place where you can go and sit, relax and be close to nature (or gods if you are Hindu or Buddhist - or any other religion I suppose.)  This little landing is under construction right now so I didn't take too many pictures.  I do love this one though - the water you see in the picture has been here for more than 9 centuries without drying up!  Pretty cool because it really isn't that big.
Banteay Kdei - right across the street from Srah Srang.  On the way there we were accosted by children selling things.  Like I have said before they are good sales people.  Just a word to the wise:  if you don't plan to buy from these children don't give them hope and say "Maybe on the way out".  They REMEMBER and they look for you.  "Hey lady, I remember you, you buy from me."  And you are screwed and will end up with more bracelets and ornaments for your Christmas tree than you will know what to do with.

                                          Banteay Kdei was built in the late 12th to early 13th Century. 
This is an image that will always come to mind when thinking of Cambodia.
Walking his cows in front of the temple.
We saw this in many of the temples - Buddha dressed and decorated. You can put money in the box and get a bracelet tied around your wrist, light and incense and pray to Buddha here.  I know for many this has meaning, but to me it took away from the beauty of the temple.....just my opinion. 
I was kind of afraid to walk under this....doesn't it look like it could crumble at any moment? 
So old and so cool....
I love the natural beauty of how the trees just grew where ever they wanted....
I'm a lucky girl in so many ways.
