Thumbs up at Angkor Wat. I'm back in Bangkok now after circumnavigating Southeast Asia over some 6000km. I've explored Myanmar and stood at the top of a 777 year old temple as the sun rose over mystical Bagan, I have been at 5600m (struggling to breathe) watching the sun set over Mount Everest, I have spent weeks in The Big Mango (Bangkok) falling further and further in love, I have had some of the best food in my life, I have happily lazed around in Laos, I have seen the most incredibly beautiful landscapes that Vietnam has to offer, and I have had a mere glimpse of alluring Cambodia. Now, after a difficult goodbye in Bangkok, I turn around and head back to Cambodia to intern at a craft brewery in the small town of Kampot for a couple of weeks. We will see where that goes. Keep moving forward!

On the way here (Vietnam) we watched the Parts Unknown episode in Vietnam where Bourdain meets Obama and they go for "bun cha" - a classic northern Vietnamese dish. As we are sitting down to eat bun cha for the first time solely because of him, I read of his passing. I don't know what else to say other than that it is truly devastating. He opened our eyes to the world around us and that will live on indefinitely.
