Orchids and Stitch Meditation

Arrived in Siem Reap, Cambodia via Singapore this morning and was greeted with humidity and heat as the door of the plane opened. Our transfer driver told us a bit of the background to Cambodia.
The main street used to be called Highway 6 as in one direction it leads you to the border of Thailand and it is now lined with 200+ hotels.
65% of of the population works in the hospitality industry.
The fishing industry is slowly dying as the amount of fish species are dwindling.
2 new international airports are planned to be built and finished within 5 years, as they are no longer allowed to fly over the temples.
 Amazing orchid display at the airport.




 Loved this painted lotus leaf.
