Basically this sums up our day: We ate snacks for lunch. Watched the Lion King on my iPad. Played various card games and swam in the pool. Well, we swam in the pool until some Russians took it over and we felt the need to get out. (Also the old women were wearing sketchy bikinis and the guys were in speedos. Gross.)

Our guide, Kong, was very nice and explained Cambodian Khmar lifestyle to us. We rode through the countryside and through some local (small) villages. It was really awesome to see the rice fields and a more relaxed Cambodia.
Halfway through our ride we stopped at a very secluded temple called Wat Atvea. There weren't hardly any tourists there and it was really beautiful! I read online that Wat Atvea was built in the 12th century around the same time the Angkor Wat temples were built.

After taking a short break to hop off and see the temple, and of course take photos, we got back on our horses and made a loop back to the ranch were we started. We got to trot some which was really awesome! We could have done more, and cantered, but Alexis isn't an experience horse person so I was content to do whatever she felt comfortable doing.
