Anyway, we arrived in Cambodia a couple of days before the race, which gave us time to sight-see and get thoroughly dehydrated before the race! But, really, I ended up being pretty dehydrated during the race, but we'll get to that in another post :) We spent a full (and very, very hot and sweaty) day exploring the temples in the Angkor Archaeological Park. We arranged for some drivers to take us around for the day in their tuk tuks, which was really fun and a very authentic way to travel through the area.
Okay, be prepared for a lot of pictures!!!
Popsicles and lunch break! I think that this meal, served at a make-shift restaurant in the park, was the best food we had the whole time we were in Cambodia, which is saying a lot since it was all delicious! I had no idea how tasty Cambodian food is!
