Summer 2013 - Cambodia - Siem Reap - Angkor Wat
Angkor Wat Outer Inclosure

Check out mine and my friend’s bad ass pose that we emulated from the carved reliefs of Angkor Wat’s outer inclosure. I’m not exactly sure which inclosure (East, West, North, South) nor which scenes, since there are eight of them in total, but I am pretty sure that it a scene from the Ramayana. It’s a bit difficult to see the carvings since they are in such low relief but if you focus you can make out some incredible things.

Did you notice the shiny, dark spots spread randomly throughout the carvings? Those are places where some dumbasses rub against. Hence the rope around the inclosure. Sadly, there are still a lot of ignorant people who do not know the value of priceless, and irreplaceable monuments.
