We arrived in Siem Reap, Cambodia after flying from Bangkok, Thailand on Monday, October 10th, 2016. The night that we got in, we simply just hung out at our hotel, the Billina Boutique.
After we visited Wat Pho we headed to the Thai mall Central Plaza Grand Rama 9 to get some lunch at a Japanese Restaurant which had very good sushi and miso soup.
Wat Pho is the temple in Bangkok, Thailand that houses the giant golden reclining Buddha. There are other places to go and dozens of other Buddha in the Wat.
After my cousin Earth’s graduation Rehearsal, we all piled into the two cars and drove to the Jim Thompson House, which was not a place I knew about before we got there.
One of the very first things I did once I got to Thailand was go to my cousin Earth’s graduation rehearsal. It was fun to be able to be there for part of his graduation traditions
Oh Leslie! My Lovely Lady Leslie, my home-on-the-roam. What a beaut! I could not have done any of this without her, the awesome forest green 2004 Toyota Highlander.
Agate Fossil Beds National Monument in Nebraska was pretty cool. Not much to see here besides what was in the visitor center and museum, but it was interesting.
This was my final cave of the trip, and was a very unique cave. This cave is a dry cave, so it really did not have much in the way of stalagmites or stalactites. But it had lots of boxwork.
Custer State Park in South Dakota was a place that I didn’t know too much about beforehand. All I really knew was that I had heard some positive things about it.
After I left Crazy Horse Memorial I drove like the half hour it takes to get to Mount Rushmore. This was a place that I had fully expected that I would spend very little time at.
After I left Jewel Cave National Monument, I went to Crazy Horse Memorial. I was not there for very long. It was a cool place to go to, but a one-time see in my opinion.
Jewel Cave National Monument was a very pretty cave. I visited this cave on the morning of September 25, 2016, Day number 23 for my Drive-About 2016 #2.
