Caught my eye, photos in Cambodia :)

This is a part of our Cambodia forums to chat about anything Cambodia-related. This discussion forum is at the top of our site because it's usually the busiest part of the expat community chatter with random topics on just about everything, including expat life, Khmer politics, Cambodian blogs we have or have come across, or whatever else our members want to discuss. Whether you're an expatriate, tourist, Cambodian or random traveler just passing through South East Asia, you are welcome to talk about anything or start new topics yourselves.

I love the temples.

We always bought stuff from the sellers. I loved the Wintermelon Tea!

Some pictures I took at the south gate of Angkor Wat recently. It's the one that you can spot on the approach road from Siem Reap in the forest across the moat. Nearly all of the windows were blocked up with stones scavenged from elsewhere with just a slot for a gun. That inside platform of stones has "I love you- kikilu" on it but that's probably recent. The Buddha inside is in a poor state and looks like it was vandalized long ago.

I took a solo trip out to Kratie years ago.

I was exploring around a Wat when I saw the 'bell' they used to call the monks.

To my eye it looked like the forward part of a Mk. 81 250lb'er or some kind of howitzer artillery round.

You could see the threads where the fuse would be screwed in.

For 8 centuries in the upper temple in Sihanoukville, they use the hub from the wheel of a truck as a bell. :)

OK, cleaned up a few posts. Let's not derail this great topic. And let's respect non native English speaking members and cut them some slack on their use of English. Thanks

Carry on with the great pics!

Some great pics there, I liked Lambo's elephant in Snookyville. I have a similar photo. How does one post photos nowadays, I always thought it was too difficult. I liked the temple windows with the gun slits as well, I never saw that.
I must go through the vintage ipad and see what i have...

It's dead easy to post photos if you click on the thing with the green head on the bar above. There's also a post with instructions by UT to walk you through it somewhere. Mods ?
