She was in her zen mode, taking her break under this big old tree, enjoying the view and care nothing about this mad world. I have been traveling to an alien land for a quite a few times, I dare not say I know the world round. From my observation, you can hardly find that kind of peacefulness among other developed countries where you need to run to catch your bus to work, to get to work on time and to be stuck in your cubicle and window-less office for hours and there, every day is a rush to get to somewhere or to do something. The world doesn’t stop spinning, but you can pause and absorb the world around you. Then you realize how beautiful and fulfilling your life is. Only when you know how to enjoy and make peace with your world, then you know how to live it.

    That’s a great idea to create a website describing all you’ve experienced. I’m one among others who loves the peaceful fresh riding around Angkor area. I love your journal.
