Cambodia: Ta Prohm (and other amazing temples)...

Up early we visited the Angkor Thom area in the early morning sunlight. Ta Prohm (and some of the other temples) are in many respects more amazing than Angkor Wat itself.  Ta Prohm is a jungle over-grown temple (most famously used in the Lara Croft film). From there we moved on to Bayon Temple with its many faces of Buddha,  climbed pyramid-like Phimeanakas, and finally walked along the Elephant and Leper King terraces. What a day!
