Ta Prohm and Angelina Jolie

DSC00219

Cambodian tourism got a major push after Tomb Raider movie was shot at Ta Prohm. I’m sure many of you will be familiar with these pictures.

Apart from Angkor Wat, Ta Prohm and Bayon are the most visited temples in Siem Reap. I was very impressed with Ta Prohm, the sight is really unique.

The Ancient City of Siam – Thailand

Swimming with Haripriya

Our apartment building had a nice rooftop pool overlooking the surrounding bungalows and gardens. The sweet singing of Asian Koel Bird among mango and other tropical trees such as Tamarind, Banyan and Coconut resembled India.

The pool area was deserted most of the times, offering privacy and peace. It was a perfect setting for Haripriya’s first swimming lesson. :-)
