Siem Reap, Cambodia
Temples, a recovering country and economy, and some pretty great moments with the sun
Thinking of Cambodia, a warm orange glow comes to mind. Its hot and humid air, permeated with the smog of burnt leaf litter and trash at all times of the day, laced with a particularly heavy and thick acrid smell. As a side effect, the sunrises and sunsets are particularly beautiful. But during the day, if you have your helmet visor down tight, the floating ash makes you feel as you are trapped in a snow globe of a lost civilization, rebuilding itself after a troubled past.
