Angkor Wat 18

I would like to thank Cheerful Dimaculangan of Postcrossing Mom for sending me a postcard all the way from Cambodia. Thanks a lot sis! I heard a little bit about Cambodia before through my friend Alex. Alex was my classmate in Spanish class back in California.  When he introduced himself, I thought he was a Filipino. Him and his wife migrated to the US years ago. They have an auto shop called “Angkor Wat”.  They even own a school in Cambodia. When hubby and I went to their car shop, he showed me some interesting photos of Cambodia and he also taught me how to write their alphabet. I forgot the term of the alphabet script. I wish to visit this majestic place someday!

A massive 3 tiered pyramid crowned by 5 lotus like towers rising 65m from ground level. It is surrounded by moat and a wall measuring 1.3kmx1.5km, temple itself is 1km2 and consists of 3 levels surmounted by a central tower. The temple walls are covered inside and out with bas-reliefs and carvings!

    The main reason why I really like geography is because of the wondrous places and landmarks of various countries around the globe.

    Angkor Wat is the world’s largest religious building and remains to be substantial religious site since the time it was established.

    Wonderful postcard. I remember waking up really early to see the sunrise at the complex. Unfortunately, hindi namin nakita because the clouds were too thick and then it started raining. But it was an unforgettable experience. I hope to be back.
