4:00am!! Far too early to be woken up but necessary to get a good spot at Angkor Wat for the sunrise. And it was worth it; we beat the crowds so got an amazing spot! One of the cafe workers even brought our breakfast of tea and a chocolate pancake to us on the ledge we were sat on. Lovely!
The sunrise this morning was a lot different to yesterday's as there were far more clouds this morning. It was beautiful!
Once the daylight had completely revealed itself, we returned to the hostel to finish packing and catch our 9:30am bus to Battambang.
The bus journey was unevenful although I did spend half my time squishing mosquitos as there seemed to be a swarm of them on the bus!
We were met at our homestay in Battambang by the very friendly owner who seemed intent that we start sightseeing immediately. After repeatedly telling him that we'd been up since 4am so wanted nothing more than a lie down, he gave up and agreed it would be best for us to fit in all the sights tomorrow instead. Phew!
So we spent the afternoon watching rubbish TV, trying not to fall asleep, followed by an early dinner at "Flirt" cafe where we had cottage pie and crumble (not surprisingly it's owned by a Brit)!
Very much looking forward to a long sleep tonight...
