Today, we went to Tonle Sap in the morning to look at the fishing village. The houses were built on stilts. We took a boat and enjoyed the breeze while observing the local life. Lunch was fabulous! It was taken in a fisherman's house. All the dishes were fish-based. We even had barbequed snake head fish.
In the afternoon, the journey took us to Angkor Wat. 'Angkor' means capital city and 'Wat' is temple. We encountered many local children trying to sell postcards and souvenirs. We rejected them and wondered whether it was right to do that. At Angkor Wat, we visited many temples and statues. The tour guide explained to us the significance of the statues, backed by the multitude of stories. There were many statues that were beheaded during the civil war.
And once again, dinner was really good and there was always huge servings of rice. Rice is grown abundantly in Cambodia and locals eat it in huge amounts as it provides them with the main source of energy. There was a dish where the curry chicken was served in a coconut husk.
