After a sunrise spent at Angkor Wat Temple, followed by a visit to Ta Prohm Temple, Susan and I opted to split off from the tour group with like-minded adventurers Miles and Maryanne Cooper from San Francisco. And after negotiating rates for a pair of tuk tuks, the four of us set out from Ta Prohm on about a 30 kilometer journey out from Siem Reap, Cambodia, to the ancient ruins of Banteay Srey Temple.

Unfortunately back in Thailand today, my visit to Siem Reap seemed to have brought about a visit by the Siem Reaper. Miles jokingly coined the term at dinner last night before trouble set in, but after a feverish day waylaid in the hotel room spent either prone or on the throne, it’s really no laughing matter.

Hopefully I’ll be back to functioning levels by tomorrow.
