sunrise to sunset
North to south Empty Running on Bravado Bloc Party, Helicopter
so had 3rd and final day at the temples today.
started at 5am, getting up for sunrise at Anchor Wat. it was fantastic! took about athOUSand photos - camera battery was deader than disco by the end of it. so had brekky opposite the temple then round 9am went back to my hostel and crashed for a few hours, and more importantly, charged my camera. back out in the arvo, we drove for over an hour to see this cool temple (name escapes me right now and im stuffed if i can be bothered looking it up in my lonely planet) that had heaps of it collapsed and run down by the jungle. waaaay cool. i almost got lost! cos you hafta climb over heaps of these huge sandstone blocks that are strewn everywhere and you totally loose your sense of direction... after that saw a few other temples on the way back and then went up to this temple on top of a hill where you get a spectacular view of the sunset. fanbloodytastic. took another thOUSand pics...
so im again pretty tired.. and the fact that today i didnt eat for a period of about 12hrs didnt help.. made up for it with this delicous pizza for dinner. mmmmmmpizza.....
so cos i had a bit of a snooze today, im gonna head out and check out the bars on 'bar street' tonight i rekon. i had a few quiet ones last nite at 'Anchor What?' which almost everyone, from home and who iv met over here, have told me to check out. was pretty cool, but uncrowded cos it was like 9pm. i played pool with this swede called simon. he was cool, tho i wondered when he first rocked up to the bar and said 'im looking to get drunk off cocktails. what do you have?' haha oh and whit, theres no way in hell im gonna find your guys' writing!
so yeah, bus to bangers tmro, one night there then hitting the islands. looking forward to it! cool cubyeeee
ps iv been told i say 'heaps good' a lot, and that its a bit of an aussie thing.. i didnt know that!
i've decided that now is the time for me to make my first overseas endeavor, and so i am doing a bit of traveling, doing a bit of working, and mostly just doing a bit of everything.
so i leave (or have already left!) Sydney on March 3 for numerous overseas locations: some already planned, many not.
wish me luck!
