siem reap: angkor wat
The people there were really friendly too. The number of times I wished I'd asked if I could take a photo but didn't at the start of our trip. Towards the end, I would sometimes just signal or have a chat with them and then ask if I could take a quick snap and every time, the response was always a resounding "yes"!! I should have just done it right from the start. It's pretty cool too because you get to talk to them about their lives and what they do and they woul ask questions about us too. With the photo above, I was making eye contact with the kid while watching his big sister turn a piece of cloth into a baby seat on that bike! I was initially afraid for the baby but he fitted so well into it and I think they must have done it a million times before so it must work for them.
