Orange Obsession, travel diary in Cambodia #2

In many temples of Angkor Wat , you can easily see the Buddhists monks. They walk in silence, make eye-contact with the peoples around and give smiles when someone give them food or money. Hands are hidden in large coats, bare legs, gentle faces, the monks slowly move inside the temples, only orange color makes them stand out in the crowd.

I wore an orange dress when I visited Bayon temple and I was not wrong to choose it. Yoann and me asked a monk who gave his wishes and prays for our red & orange bracelets. We wore them with the belief to receive the protection of both Buddhists and Hindus.
