Oudong Mountain

After a full day of kicking myself for accidentally leaving my camera at home on Saturday (what are the chances of coming across moto-cross in Cambodia?!)*, I was determined to make good on Sunday.  Our Sunday trip to Oudong Mountain, with stupas rising from the top that elicit thoughts of Candyland, definitely did not disappoint. We made the trip to the old capital of Cambodia with some fellow expat friends.  After walking along the mountaintop paths among the stupas and taking in some of the most expansive views I’ve ever seen, there was a repeat of Saturday’s lunchtime laziness complete with hammock lounging, fish & chicken eating and icy beer drinking. On our way home, we were spotted on the road by a fellow DDDer who invited us to sit for a bit. He even fetched us fresh coconuts before we made the ~40k (25 mile) trip home. View more photos from the day here.

*I missed Cambo moto-cross, but you don’t have to.  Thushan should be following up with those photos, soon.

  1. Don’t make me give Thushan a lecture about the dangers of riding a motorcycle in shorts and flip flops… Alicia, I assume that you wore full body armor, right?
