2013, Day 45 - Lost love

This was one of the last pictures of the day I took at the top of Pre Rup.  Brian, Araceli, and I had already descended and were getting ready to leave but we couldn't find Nicole.  Mr. Mony, our intrepid guide, returned to the temple to find her.  Two minutes turned to ten and the three of us decided to get back into the temple because the sky was really starting to show some color as the light began to dwindle.

We made our way back to the front and climbed two sets of stairs stopping only take another series of pictures to try to capture the light.  Mr. Mony found Nicole and while I am sure Brian was much relieved I was distracted by the amazing sky.  I started to climb back to the third level up the incredibly steep stairs while the guards were ushering people out.  I think Mr. Mony must have distracted him because I was the last person in the temple but caught no flack for it.

It has been a long day but I am glad that Nicole lingered because without those few minutes of delay we might have missed one of the most spectacular sunsets in Cambodia!
