Frappacino's Grand Adventure

Unfortunately, Frappy's camera broke while she was in Malaysia. She had a time of it trying to get the pictures she took downloaded... but she prevailed. Grandpa has the rest of the pictures from her trip. People, she took HUNDREDS of pictures before her camera broke. I am only sharing a handful here.

Monkeys run wild over there. This particular monkey tried to attack Frappy's cousin. She hopped over that little wall there real quick!

Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia... where Grandpa says the city began.

Monkeys really were everywhere.

A lake in Siem Reap, Cambodia. It is the rainy season there so the mud from the bottom of the lake churned up to the top.

Hmmmm... would you like to go down there?

Cambodian boys doing what boys do. Believe it or not, they were poking the crocodiles seen in the picture above. I wonder if that middle boy lost his arm to a crocodile.

An outlying temple near Angkor Wat, Siem Reap, Cambodia.

Oh yeah. I took her to get her expensive shots and to watch a video on what not to do... including a warning about wearing flip flops. Yup, she did. Interestingly though, the one injury she did get on her foot was when she was wearing running shoes.

This handsome dude is part of a bridge.

The other side of the bridge.

Another outlying temple.

Wall art inside the temple.

More wall art. I think I had a nightmare about this picture.

Don't ya just love all the faces everywhere?

Another temple.

Trees have grown up all around these ruins.

The inside of Angkor Wat.

The middle of Angkor Wat.

Phnom-Penh's version of France's Arc de Triumph,

On the palace grounds in Phnom-Penh.
Frappy went to Malaysia, Cambodia and Borneo, Indonesia. She has definitely seen more of the world than either her father or myself. She got a kick out the airport in Taipei, Tawain. They are really into Hello Kitty there and had the waiting room all decked out in Hello Kitty... even the phone booths were Hello Kitty.

Here is a short video by National Geographic on Angkor Wat. There is a lot about it on the internet if you are interested.
