Taking Leave

Previous Post: Winding Down

My plan for the morning is to sleep in a bit, join the others for breakfast, and then hang out in the pool.

In the end, only Joe actually gets in the pool, and even he doesn’t stay there long. Instead we convince David to join Joe, Lane, and me in a game of cribbage. David cooperates grudgingly, (although later, on the plane, he sounds like he maybe enjoyed it – or maybe it just doesn’t seem so bad when compared to the interminable flight). We play cards until we can’t avoid the reality of the situation anymore: The time to gather our bags and leave has come.

I wish we could spend a few more days relaxing here by the pool. I bet we would even be ready to explore a few more temples after resting up!

Alas, that is not to be and soon Choeun delivers us to Siem Reap’s cute little international airport. It is the start of a very long day that will end many hours later back at LAX.
