A little bit of everything

5am felt pretty early for our group, as bed didn't happen until at least 11pm last night. But there was no whimpering and everyone was on time! The team mantra is: don't drink tap water and don't be late!

Today was just the right amount of everything. Can you imagine a better way to start than sunrise over Angkor Wat? Then it was the first challenge! Teams ripped open envelopes to find their first temple photo challenge and darted off to get started! Ian an Peter slammed the competition, winning by over 10 minutes!

A good 20km cycling later we were at our second temple and second photo challenge. This time it wasn't so easy for Ian and Peter, as Greg and Fiona managed to fin the relief at the same time! Unfortunately for Peter, Gregs long legs found him leaping past the finish line just 5 seconds ahead of Peter to claim first place!

From there it was onward to our boat connection for an afternoon tour of the floating villages and mangroves before lunch with Sasa and her family!

As these adventures are ALWAYS an adventure, our boat ground to a hault on the way back due to shrinking river levels, which meant we had to wade to shore and hitch a ride in the back of a truck. Woohoo!

80km cycling tomorrow! Finally, special shout out to Jennifer, who faced her fear and did brilliantly on the bike today. You rock!!!
