Thailand to Cambodia

Waking early at Dasadana resort this morning near the national  park Lindy took a walk around the resort. Beautiful gardens and wonderful sunrise.

Departure was on time at 8am and we drove for about 3 hours to the Cambodian border. We were not sure what to expect in the way of time to exit Thailand with the cars and enter Cambodia. We were pleasantly surprised as with help from guides on both sides it was all completed in about an hour.

Next stop…Angkor Wat

The sights along the road were interesting. Not only were we now driving on the right side of the road (with steering wheel on right as well) but we had to contend with people overtaking in difficult places. Motor bikes and trucks were laden high and in general the scenery was flatter than we had seen before…the delta allowing the many rice fields to produce.

As we were waiting to clear the border I watched a lady crunch on a cicada like feast…her morning snack.  One of the many sights we shall see!

Wine and more architecture

Wine and More Wine – OleBilbao OLD and NEW Monday dawned sunny and warm and we headed down to the Guggenheim Museum, even though it is closed we wanted to relish the slick titanium skin, contrasted against the smooth pale limestone blocks. Everything glistened in the bright morning sun, reflections of the curved surfaces bounced off the water surrounding the metal walls and the metallic sculptures in the forecourts around the Guggenheim. Did you know that every surface in the building is curved and there are no straight lines thus emphasising the organic flowing lines of this magnificent Frank Gehry masterpiece Tomorrow we’ll visit this amazing museum along with our Silk Road companions Pat and David who we are travelling with around Spain and Portugal in our trusty MGs. Hop on and off buses have always been a favourite and quick way of acquainting ourselves with a city. We cruised around the narrow streets enjoying the views from the top deck. We were diverted by police a few times into the back streets because of a rally of thousands of people marching along the main thoroughfare of the city. Red, white and Green flags and banners waving, fire crackers exploding, releasing clouds of smoke. How We hopped off a The Mercado de la Ribera one of the largest fresh food markets in Europe and we arrived just in time for some Pintxos which we enjoyed with a beer and Sangria. So many delicious sweet and savoury munchies to choose from – what a treat!
