[chuck] in 60 years, Angkor Wat, Cambodia, Other, Ta Prohm

Spent the first week of my 60th year climbing around the ruins of Angkor Wat in Cambodia - with my oldest son Case (see Steal Yourself and Ganesha (with Coffee). Took many pictures of this incredible monument to human ingenuity and artistic expression, and will surely be posting some in the weeks to come. For now, the classic Angkor Wat image of the strangler figs (Ficus gibosa Blume) reclaiming Ta Prohm, the Buddhist temple dedicated to the mother of Jayarvarman VII, is shown above. [NOTE: This place is amazing}.
