Temple Mania: Cambodia Edition: Agkor Wat

We woke up at 4:30 on this day and walked out to our tuk-tuk in the pitch black.  It was an awesome ride out in the cool air and we got to this morning's temple just as some light could be seen over the horizon.  No trip to Cambodia is complete without a sunrise at Angkor Wat.  All together the Cambodian Angkor temple complexes is one of the biggest in the world as well as oldest.  Angkor Wat is an amazing set of structures surrounded by a moat that is more like a Great Lake than anything else.  It is really the most impressive temple complex as well as the most impressive structure I have seen that was built by human hands.
