2010-07-03 -- Brunei to Siem Reap

And, again, I forget details about this flight, sorry. If I remember correctly (11 days later), we had no problems leaving Brunei; we were already fueled, and checking out wasn't an issue. The flight was uneventful. In Siem Reap, we parked a bit away from everything, and fueling was (as usual) not swift. We took the extra time to put stickers onto Lyle's PC-12.

How much Jet-A1 do we have over here? We just throw it out! (Apologies to Jeffrey)

The lake outside Siem Reap was covered in either shadows from clouds, or was inconsistently muddy. Strange looking.

The floating city! It sure seemed a lot further away when we did this on boat. Tomorrow, we'll get on the boat at the brown-dirt area and follow the river to the lake.

Maybe a better view of the floating city. Probably not that much better.

Looking down the street. We wandered out for a walk....only to end up across the street (to the right of this picture) where Guilliame bought a bunch of paintings, and both of us bought watches.

After our shopping spree, the hotel looking beautiful in the evening sun. Terrible picture, but the only one I got. I wanted to, but never wandered out again, it rained and poured the next night.

Dinner was, finally, fantastic. This is a curry-rubbed tenderloin, with ginger potatoes -- kind of like scalloped potatoes; layers of potato separated by ginger and/or cheese (ginger for sure, cheese maybe). I have no idea what the green stuff is. Spinach? Mint chutney? Don't know. The garnish was delicious and beautiful -- a potato chip!
