Angkor Wat, Cambodia. That’s where trees grow on top of 1,000 year old temples.

I first went there ten years ago. It’s definitely worth seeing. But if you go to visit, let me offer two tips.

  1. Never drink water from a Cambodian tap.
  2. If you buy bottled water, examine the seal and the bottom of the bottle.

Some of the locals might look for easy money and pour tap water in.

I drank from one of those bottles. It gave me giardia for Christmas. It’s a microscopic parasite that can make you nauseous, bloated and smellier than a sewer. My doctor ordered a colonoscopy. That’s when they put a camera where the sun doesn’t shine. I didn’t like it very much.
