Anjolina Jolie Was Here

Siem Reap, Cambodia---Ta Phrom (Tomb Raiders filmed here). This temple is undergoing restoration. The jungle (trees) grew in between the tightly fit blocks and gradually pried them apart. ( also notice the stone mortise and tenon joint!)

The picture of monks is from Luang Prabang, Laos. They walk through the town at sunrise every morning accepting offerings of food for the day from bhuddist town's people.

  1. A mortise joint out of stone...I do realize that shouldn't be the most impressive thing, but I've no experience carving pictoral histories or finding treasure while fighting off bad guys, so what can I say....
    I wondered if monks still accepted food as offerings anymore!
