Pull up a Seat [Siem Reap]
Beautiful scenery but really uncomfortable for someone my age, the seat was basically a plank on the floor of the boat.

Angkor Wat, Cambodia
There were millions of people walking on this road the day before [see last post] and food and goods stalls at the Phnom Penh water festival, it was spotless when I took this photo the day after.
Also lots of benches for Pull up a Seat challenge.
