If you get to Angkor Wat very early in the morning, or befriend a monk and get to stay very late into the evening, then you can forget that you’re past the year 2011. It doesn’t take long before you feel like one of those classical British explorers, tromping through the jungle, finding ancient treasures. And, of course, you get to wear those little fancy hats and everything…

But, at the same time, after many days of mega-humid exploration, every time you wake up, you’re half-convinced you’ve contracted Legionnaires’ disease. It’s that unsettling feeling of waking up overseas in a cold sweat in a strange bed thinking, “OMG, I’m pretty sure my kidney shouldn’t feel quite like this.”
