Sometime well before 3, I was ‘templed out’ and decided I had seen more than enough temples and decided to head back. Getting back to our tuk-tuk we found it surrounded by some menacing monkeys who were a bit aggressive. One started to make his move into the tuk-tuk but a toss of a can of Coke was able to convince him to leave us alone.





I had originally booked a 5:45pm ticket with Cambodia Angkor Air ($125) on the assumption that the tour would last until 2:30-3. Back in the hotel I called them and they agreed to change me on to the 3:50p for a small fee. I bid adieu to Siem Reap and tuk-tuk’d my way to the airport…

Indeed a great and fun and "different" TR. At one point, do you mind breaking down flights/points so we have an idea of how you booked it all as well? TIA

Looks amazing . Not that I know you or even know that you are jewish. assuming you are jewish how do you justify going into temples that are more than likely been used for idol worship. Thus going against the Almighty's will as expressed in the shulchan aruch?

He doesn't need to justify it to anyone on DDF. Thanks for playing Rabbi.

I didnt say he does need to justify to DDF... I asked how he justifies it to himself... Thanks for playing indifferent to a fellow jew's situation

  • Location: The value of a forum such as this one is not in that one can post a question and receive an answer, but in that the question has most likely been asked before, and the answer is available to him that will but only use the search function.
  • Programs: 1. Search on google. 2. Search in the right board of DDF with a general word or two. 3. Read the wiki. 4. Read the thread. 5. Ask away.

This isn't JS, and you're asking that very accusatory.

Feel free to start a JS thread about going into temples. But please don't come into someone's thread where they are spending time writing and uploading pics for a TR that many members are enjoying and dump your criticism here.

Awesome TR Moish! That sand dunes driving is insane! I'd love to drive there one day, probably flip 100 times or more before getting it right.

Any videos to share of the machine gun?

Feel free to ask this in a PM or here. I don't think the point of a TR is to address these types of questions or concerns. Everyone for themselves; if you are concerned or unsure if you can visit those places, you can ask your LOR.

Some people are Jewish and don't eat kosher. Happens.

You political correctness and concern of which thread or format I propose my question is heard however why does it blind you to relevance and importance of my comment . Why should GD be left out of this forum or thread because its
  someone's thread
( ... a term unheard of to my knowledge)

Or how i can be called a

Jerk
with no abjection from the same "political correctness"  argument .
 it just goes to show that you dont care about the right way of asking the Q ... you prefer the Q isnt asked.
In my eyes that is worse than sin because it condones it.
