Date: December, 2014
Location: Angkor Thom, Cambodia
Description: The prior day, I was too late to get a coveted location by the Angkor Wat reflecting pond. On this day, I got there so early I was first to arrive at the reflecting pond and got to pick my spot. A beautiful sunrise ensued. By the time the sun was coming up, there was a gigantic crowd of people packed in behind me, jostling me to try to get up closer. It was impossible to even turn around it was so crowded.
