stone peace

one of the most peaceful smiles i have seen on my journeys, carried by a carved stone figure in bayon, one of the temples of angkor wat, cambodia. best way to see it: get up at 4 (a.m. that is), get picked up by a motobike at 4.30, drive to the temples while it's still dark, to be there for dawn. sit down on one of the ancient temple terraces, and see the light return to the world, bringing back the colours and the sounds. and then, see this smile appear out of the haziness of the darkness, set there in a past that is still present.
