Travel Tuesday Cambodia:Lolei

Lolei (Khmer: ប្រាសាទលលៃ) is the northernmost temple of the Roluos group of three late 9th century Hindu temples at AngkorCambodia, the others members of which are Preah Ko and the Bakong. Lolei was the last of the three temples to be built as part of the city of Hariharalaya that once flourished at Roluos, and in 893 the Khmer king Yasovarman I dedicated it to Shiva and to members of the royal family. The name “Lolei” is thought to be a modern corruption of the ancient name “Hariharalaya,”[1]:98,112 which means “the city of Harihara.” Once an island temple, Lolei was located on an island slightly north of centre in the now dry Indratataka baray,[2]:60 construction of which had nearly been completed under Yasovarman’s father and predecessor Indravarman I. Scholars believe that placing the temple on an island in the middle of a body of water served to identify it symbolically with Mount Meru, home of the gods, which in Hindu mythology is surrounded by the world oceans

The Black Barbie Chronicles: Black Barbie in No Country for Inspiration

It’s true some days I’m awesome, somes days I don’t have a clue what I’m doing. Anyhoo, check out my story below and enjoy.

Black Barbie in No Country for Inspiration

      When I first arrived in Korea Land, I thought I would never have enough hours in the day to document my adventures. I mean everyday there is something new and exciting to view, learn, and experience. I thought I would overload my senses! Well, it’s been what, close to a month and the newness have worn off.

Now I find it difficult to write. It’s like something weird has happened to me. Have I mellowed out? Leveled out? Am I now a good person? Have I reached enlightenment? Am I no longer a fucking bitchy entitled asshole? Is my privilege showing?

      Hell no! I’m still the same bitch as before.  What has happened is that I now picked up this really annoying habit of repeating myself in Korea Land. Now I usually try and do my Rain Man performance of repeating short words when in public.  Yes, the repetition is as ridiculous as it sounds.

      For some reason I am no longer able to say simplistic English words like, “Yes”, “No”, “Thank you”, or “Please”. Now, I’m sounding like a damn Japanese anime character saying such gems like, “ same, same” , “small, small”, “service, service”, “yes, yes”  or “no, no”. You see, this might be necessary if I were using more advanced words and speaking to individuals whom aren’t fluent in English when doing this, like my kiddies and my fellow teachers.  I am sorry to say that I actually seem to do it more when I’m speaking to other foreigners in Busan. Conclusion? I think I am a bit on the slow side. Who the fuck knows?
