After we already got a first impression of the the Angkor temples on the previous day, we set off to see a few more, including Angkor Wat. The first stop was going to be Banteay Srei, a temple with really intricate carvings.

It was about an hour’s drive to Banteay Srei and on the way we saw a lot of local villages with wooden houses of different sizes, market vendors, children playing, water buffalos bathing in little muddy streams. The houses were often built on stilts to prevent flooding of the ground floor and every family has a separate little hut for cooking. They don’t cook inside the house for fear of burning the house down. Fair enough!
