Buddhist Monastery, Sunrise/Sunset

January 29, 2017

Yesterday our group went to the largest Buddhist monastery in Cambodia. It housed one of the largest pagodas in the country. The compound housed many elaborate buildings and statues with immaculate gardens and walkways. A large number of monks and nuns live here. We got to see a portion of a traditional service and received a Buddhist blessing. 

There were many tropical plants including arbors of bougainvillea, ixora, and duranta interspersed with fountains and statues.

After the tour some went back to the ship while others went on an oxcart ride. 

The afternoon was spent in a leisurable ride down the Tonle Lake. We saw more birds, and many small farms along the way along with unique fishing techniques.

The sunset was amazingly beautiful and put on a stunning show for over 30 minutes,
