Up a Tree
Tags: chacos, chaco flips, Cambodia, Siem Reap
While living in Cambodia (2005 - 2007), my Flips went everywhere with me. They walked through monsoons. They entered villages and markets throughout the country. They went through all manner of grim and grit and came out looking almost as good on the last day as they did on the first.
I'm sorry to say that after 7 years (purchased 2004 -- strap came out 2011), they died on me last night. So I am entering this contest in honor of the wonderful time that I had in Cambodia with my reliable Flips. I knew that I could go through all of my photos from Cambodia and pick any because they were the only shoes I wore. I decided on this picture from the area around Siem Reap, Cambodia. Many people know Angkor Wat. This temple ruin area is in the same area, but it has been completely overgrown by trees. Since it is not one of the major temples (and has not received funds for restoration), no one minded me and some locals climbing around and enjoying the day. We had a blast!
