But it is the beautiful people of the world that make it a special place. Please meet our friends Thor and Sophat from Siem Reap, Cambodia.
They make our stay here special everyday. Thor, although small in stature, is like the Viking King, a leader of men.
His friend Sophat is the comedian of the pair. He explained to Katy the symbolism of the Cambodian bow. The higher the hands are placed on the body, ie, waist, chin, forehead and top of head, indicates the level of respect.
In my case, the hands are held slightly higher he said because I am an old man. At that point I had to get even and tell him that his name in English meant “So Fat” and pointed to my big belly.
Tonight we are going to see their city and eat local food and drink. The big guy will be riding with Thor and Sophat, the comedian, and Katy will be on the other motorcycle.
We calculated the heat to be 104 degrees plus yesterday. The second photo above will be our vantage point today.
