Last day in Siem Reap

Siem Reap, Cambodia

We had a free day today - we made the most of a sunny morning by the pool and then retreated to the restaurant Terrace to watch a storm hit. We were a bit creeped out by a huge swarm of dragonflies that appeared out of nowhere just before the rain started - pretty apocalyptic. Later on we headed out for massages (neck and, er, fish). I'm not sure the fish massage did anything apart from reveal just how ticklish I actually am, though.

Had a delicious curry at a really nice restaurant that puts on free apsara dancing shows - it's all about the double-jointed fingers!

This is quite a short entry so might as well mention that the next day, Friday, we got the bus back to Phnom Penh ready to catch our flight on the Saturday. Alannah and I got the early bus back so we could go out for dinner with the other volunteers still staying in Phnom Penh. Arriving back at the Narin 2 and seeing all the familiar faces actually felt a bit like coming home. We had a goodbye BBQ at one of the local restaurants and ended the night by trying to fit as many people on one moto as possible in true Cambodian style.
