Cambodia and Angkor Wat - Mary Bartnikowski Photography
Stunned at every turn, I was happy I was on my bike as I had to stop every few seconds to gasp and take it all in. 

Fortunately when it got monsoon hot I sat in the shade with locals and talked and laughed. I hope I talked one girl out of being a sex worker as that was her plan to pay for her family's bills. She worked with her mother at her food stand and she was a sweetheart and smart too. 

Its not just the monuments that are remarkable in a country, more often its the people who bust open your heart and you fall in love with their world.
