Sweet Sunrise

I woke up at 4am today, did yoga for an hour, and then quickly changed- and met the Aussie Girls outside my hostel for our 5:15am TukTuk. We arrived at the most reknown of all the temples, Angkor Wat, by 5:30. We made our way through the dark to the banks of the pond by the temple. It quickly began to fill up and by 6:20 the sky began to brighten. The sun officially rose at 6:47am - and despite being surrounded by hundreds of other tourists, it was magical. I usually refrain from joining in on the whole tourist bandwagon, but today it felt good to join in on the fun.
