Pagoda. Not sure what wat.

Randomly came across this Pagoda near to the National Museum.  I think it must be Wat Sarawan from subsequent looking at the tourist map. It was full of interest, and very much a working space.  I didn’t feel it was OK to linger, because you are sort of in a living space, plus it was quite small.  It was extraordinary though.  An old seemingly burnt-out building was bang smack next to a new construction. Whether that is a legacy of the Khmer Rouge or just a consequence of neglect I have no idea.

Pictures though, make of it what you will.  Look out for the tinsel covered tuk tuk!

Explored some back streets as we wandered back to our guest house.  Some dead ends, but some quiet corners too.  Also, check out the ‘parking inside your house’ pictures, a car and a motorbike at the end of artists showrooms.  It took a student to remind me that this is the standard way to park here, I’ve stopped noticing it as peculiar over time.
