OK, slowly but surely we are cobbling together our photo albums from this trip. We're saving the Angkor temples for last, but in the meantime... here's our look at Luang Prabang:

Fair warning: it's over 100 shots. Sorry.

Thanks! Photos are a mix from a Canon DSLR, a Canon Powershot elph 500 (which had to be returned when we got home due to a problem with the zoom), and even a few from our iPhones.

yestravel, are you still on your trip? I haven't had much time to spend here lately, so I'm not doing a very good job of keeping up.

Yep, we sure are. We're in Hoi An and leave for Hue Wednesday. Be flying thru your part of the world end of next week.

Well, it's only taken six weeks, but we've finally been through our photos of the temples in Cambodia and have posted a few galleries:

http://onelittleworld.zenfolio.com/f87118812

Each of the 10 temples we visited was unique in some way. That number sounds like a lot, but we definitely didn't get "templed out"--we could have kept going but, alas, ran out of time.

Even with four mornings there, we did not get to see the sunrise at Angkor Wat. Two of the mornings were cloudy (one with some rain), and the other two...we were just too tired (recovering from overnight flights on two consecutive nights). Kind of sad about that, but that means we'll just have to go back sometime.

I'll probably keep tinkering with the photos for awhile, especially if I can ever get to the photos DD has on her iPhone (she took some great photos).

As a side note, we had a few guidebooks (including a smaller one we carried with us on site) but used Dawn Rooney's fabulous book for our pre-trip research. Thanks, Kathie, for the recommendation!
