angkor wat child

Who’da thunk a doorway could be so fascinating?

Moms was busy asking Buddha for help, leaving this little Khmer kid to amuse himself. I was as fascinated with his antics as he was with this simple doorway at Angkor Wat. He spent a good half hour stepping through and then back again, peering out in one direction and then turning around and checking out the opposite view, never moving more than a foot or two away from his new find. He had a cute face, and those incredibly large eyes Khmer kids all seem to have, but this pose, from the back, seemed to best convey his sense of wonderment with his little world.
