Looking back...

It's that time of the year when I start thinking about my summer plans. As I think about different possible scenarios for this upcoming summer, I take a look back at the drawings done during the past summer. I had the opportunity to travel around South East Asia and one of the countries that I totally fall in love with, was Cambodia, specifically the city of Siem Reap.

Most of the drawings posted here are from the Angkor Wat Temples, they literally took my breath away, literally (it was damn hot!) and romanticly speaking (the structures are just beautiful).

Known as the "Angelina Jolie Temple" (she filmed one of her movies here),
it's real name is Ta Som.
Tourists start gathering at 5:00 am in front of Angkor Wat to wait for the sunrise.
Cameras ready, of course!

Beautiful, Orling, so happy you are posting again! I love the "roots" pieces, and the 'local lady'.
