the russian market in phnom penh

The so called Russian market in Phnom Penh is an interesting mix of sights, sounds, and smells. Although it has nothing to do with Russia really (the name stuck in the 80’s when most foreigners in town were in fact from I guess the Soviet Union at that time), it is definitely one of the …

ta prohm

I keep forgetting to upload more photos from Cambodia, but I will try to correct that in the coming weeks. Ta Prohm is this incredible temple in the Angkor complex near Siem Reap, one of the best preserved in the area. It is famous for the gigantic spung trees (actual name is just too hard, …
