Maximo's Cambodia

My mother confessed that this was another one of those trips that she worried about. She always worries - and of course, I have inherited that gene, but some trips we've taken, coincidentally, those beginning with "C" - Cuba, Colombia and now Cambodia have put her a little more on the edge, than say a trip to France or Canada.

This photo montage is of Maximo's highs and lows in Cambodia. Surprisingly, it was a great place to take kids, especially a two year old who likes nothing more than rocks and dirt.

Kansai Airport - checking out the planes with Daddy.

The pool and floaties! Necessities for our 95+ ° days!

Romping around Ta Prohm - our favorite!

Silk worms at the farm!

We got to watch the whole process,

but Max liked the caterpillars the best!

Either a stomach bug or something

he ate started to get to him...this night was spent naked

in the bathroom with lots of bodily fluids,

let's leave it at that.

The elephant ride up the "mountain"

to Phmom Bakheng.

He loved it!

Future Explorer entering Angkor Wat

On Pub Street, playing with the

"dead-skin eating fish" while waiting for dinner.

John titled this well...


But his dump truck got him through.

He does not handle the heat well.

We were out one day and some tourists

were gushing over him, and one said,

"El esta el color del tomate!"

He's never really had jewelry before and

he covets this soccer ball bracelet we got at the old market.

He wore it the rest of the week.

Trying to lure the kittens back in the house

while we purchased traditional leather puppets.

He had little interest in the puppets and

was enthralled with the cows,

chickens, dogs and cats

we passed every day on the road.

Great shots! Can't wait to go... I might have a temple tantrum of my own in that heat!
