Cambodia is a difficult place to describe. Its beauty is tremendous. And so is its poverty. Siem Reap took me back hundreds of years to mystical sort of place. Phnom Penh brought me back into a present where people continue to struggle. The images I have of Camboida are good, bad and definitely unforgettable. Here are a few.
Speaking of the people you meet when you travel…
I don’t usually take pictures of random people but this fine chap insisted – because he wanted to see the picture afterwards. Anyway this sums up a whole other side of Vietnam, one that’s not a gorgeous beach or an ornate building. Here’s real life Vietnam, smiling for the camera.
And because my last two weeks have been filled with starting a new job, learning to teach nine (yes, NINE) new curriculums and dodging my way through streets of scooters that are all out to get me, I have no great words of wisdom to give you. Not that they are ever words of wisdom, but this time I am fresh out of words completely. So, instead, I will shut the what up and share this picture of pretty, pretty Vietnam. This is the beach at the end of my block…now I remember why I moved here!
Hope you’re not sick of animal travel photots yet! ‘Cause I got plenty more where this came from.
In my recent trip to the Kruger Park (yes, I am gloating as I write this) I was crazy lucky enough to see animals in action. There were some hectic moments watching a lion kill, and three cheetahs stalk their prey. But I was also lucky enough to see animals in more relaxed situations. This elephant didn’t mind our car a few feet away. He just went about his business, doing what an elephant does.
