Since school just started, my professor is kind of corny and wants to try and get to know us a little better. Tomorrow I have to present a project to my Art History class and talk about something/somewhere that represents my culture. I chose to talk about Angkor Wat. I’ve visited many times and words can’t even begin to describe how amazing it is. All built/carved by hand, thousands of years ago. I knew it was gigantic but upon doing a little research to help my paper along, I found out it’s THE largest temple in the world! How neat is that!
