The Splendor of Angkor

Siem Reap, the town I will be volunteering in for the next six weeks, is most known for the temples of Angkor Wat. I have spent the last two days exploring them and I only got to about five (and there are... well, a lot more than five). I had no idea how massive this group of temples was! Apart from the lack of signs pointing you in the right direction, too many tourists wearing completely inappropriate clothing and humidity that just wouldn't quit, it felt really special to be in such an ancient and sacred place.
