Dhanshiritir teere and all that

There is no way I could describe my vacation in a blog post so I shall let some pictures do the work instead!

Blogmeet in Calcutta.

Bayon Temple in Cambodia.

Ta Prohm Temple in Cambodia (aka the Tomb Raider one). Its being restored by ASI.

Banteay Srei Temple in Cambodia - it looks for all the world like the Bankura / Bishnupur "pora mati" temples but tis made of sandstone and exquisitely carved.

Angkor Wat - it was hot and humid and so worth the trip...

Those steps slope at an alarming 70 degrees. It forces you to go up the central tower of Angkor on all fours to pay obeisance to Vishnu.

The view though is so so worth it!!

The Grand Palace in Krung Thep or the City of Angels - don't know what that is? Go look it up!

Awwww, two old friends!!

Chinatown in Singapore - five dollar watches (Singapore dollars mind you!) and yummy food...

Thank God! I don't feel soo bad after all;) Except that it could have been three old friends:)

Climb on all fours? Sheesh! But we want nice things said about us, evasionary tactics not allowed!

Is that all? Great pics, yeah, but where is the narrative?

Stop impersonating a clam, and give us a treat; write about it.

JAP, envy away! Oh and that was THE pink thang as far as Ani-G is concerned - the original so to say.

For all you know, ascending those steps would be no less like climbing a ladder to reach thesky :)
