Roman is finally feeling better again (Hurrah!) and we’ve had a full day here in Siem Reap. Tomorrow promises to be even more packed and it’s past my bed time so this will be a short post, but I at least wanted to get things started on Battambang before my mind is filled to the brim with temples, temples and more temples. 🙂
Like Kampong Chhnang, there was a lot to see outside of Battambang, and we spent a full and wonderful day with our two young guides/drivers, Dollar and Sum, getting to see and experience some really lovely things. But the city itself had some interesting and beautiful bits and pieces. I’ll write more about all of it later, but in the mean time, here are some photos from Battambang.

Hide and seek at the abandoned railway repair sheds
Some very energetic kids at the sheds – another photo shoot ensued… 🙂
