Rounding things up

Well, we did our last round of temple trips today, picking up the Victory Gate, Thommanon, and Ta Keo. Ironically, the only temple we have not visited is Banteay Srei, which leaves us something new to discover on the next trip.

The light was just fantastic today, possibly better than on any other day, and we even saw a rainbow as we left Ta Keo. Sang (our tuk-tuk driver) suggested we try to catch it over Angkor Wat, so off we went, chasing the rainbow. Needless to say, rainbows being emphemeral things, it had disappeared by then, but we had a serene few hours just sitting outside Angkor Wat waiting for it.

Right, it's off to pack now.
