After our little walk-around and tuk-tuk tour, we met the other three at the National Museum to tour the sculptures and artifacts there,mostly from the Angkor and Pre-Angkor periods, and largely excavated during French colonial times.  It was a very impressive display that reminded me somewhat of one of the arms of the British Museum or the Louvre--only these things had NOT been stolen and taken to the colonizing power's country.  We couldn't take photos inside--just on the outer courtyards--so that save a lot of photo time for me!  From there, we walked around the city more, including a stroll through another local market that allowed us to be splashed by snake head fish ready for the kitchen, to see plenty of exotic fruits and vegetables, and also to see more chickens in various states of "market readiness."  We next stopped in at another Buddhist monastery that was being rebuild in various stages, and then came back to the hotel to clean up and check out before going to lunch and then catching our flight to Siem Reap.
