-excerpt from my journal-(written while in the boat):)
“i am here in the middle of tonle sap lake,one of the largest freshwater lakes in the world! the sunset is so beautiful…it is a gift to be here and to see the all-seeing eye of the sun give way to the splendour and romance of the moon. the sky is blue, orange, purple and colors in between. everywhere is the serenity of water, this is like a dream, my worry is that this memory may be fleeting.. i want to remember this forever! it is so peaceful and calm and the silence is broken only by the sounds of several motorboats in the distance. i couldn’t ask for a more perfect way to end my visit to cambodia.” ………………… okay,now i have to go and weep…:) i miss cambodia!!!!

This pic was taken by a friend of mine. This lovely purple house was found during the trip in the south of Sweden since we tried to find the toilet around there.

a Hindu worship place in predominantly Muslim Malaysia. as with the other places that i’ve been to, i first saw batu cave in the discovery channel. it took me a while to reach the top because im a bit acrophobic and the steps leading to the cave were very uneven,some of them were very steep :/
i witnessed a hindu wedding ceremony here. the bride-to-be was wearing this exquisitely beautiful red and gold sari,her hands and feet were covered with henna tattoo as part of the wedding ritual. she was crying before the her wedding and my nosy german companion asked one of her relatives why and it turned out that the mother of the bride will not attend the wedding because she doesn’t approve of the groom.
