house of god(s) (verdict: Hindu-tastic!)

my man's intuition tells me most of you Nintendo playing warriors will never make it out to this neck of the woods to tour one of the greatest set of ruins in the world; i use the word 'ruins' very lightly because the temples of the Angkor complex in Cambodia are far from ruined like its Roman counterparts. the structure itself along with the intricate wall carvings have survived the test of time and for now, the onslaught of mindless package tourists that feel its necessary to touch everything with their sausage-like fingers. they f'in disappoint me.

photos don't do justice to this vast intact temple dedicated to the Hindu god Vishnu. like my body, Angkor's combination of form and function is breathtaking - my fists alone are deadly weapons once used to excavate pure granite, accomplishing what pneumatic drills were unable. but when seen under the right lighting, the same fists are as delicate and lithe as a 7 y/o's anus.

i have nothing constructive to say right now but i'm dying to post this video of my daily paradise walk. every evening, i take my hour-long tour of the island, stopping for a sunset and to stare at wading Thai mainlanders on their weekend junkets. on an island where the most activity i get is walking from my bungalow for meals (and back), i stay vigilante not to gain back the 10 pounds i lost in indonesia through disease and malaise. hence i take a nightly romantic walk for couples as a party of one. (jesus H christ, i need a girlfriend)

for those that are curious, every 3 steps, i snapped a low res picture and timelapsed the entirety in Adobe Premiere to some snazzy muzak. some 2000 pictures in all but the result was worth my chafed thighs walking in 40 degree (C) weather.
