Barring any huge scholarship offers from a school that put Chad on a wait list, we are pleased to announce to the three of you who read this (you know who you are, and we thank you for that) Chad will be attending UCLA for law school. It has been working out so well that it definitely seems meant to be. From being the first school to respond (always a nice thing) to the roughly 20,000 in scholarships and grants they offered- it has been pretty great. 

So it seems that we will be heading back to Los Angeles for the foreseeable future. We are very torn about it. Chad is really excited for UCLA, it was one of his top choices, and we are excited for the warm weather (one of us significantly more than the other... I'm sure you all can figure out who), being closer to family (some of them) and that in only 3 short years Chad will finally be done with school, but we will miss all the friends and the public transportation (sometimes) from NYC.

Also, Sunday marked 3 months left here in China and it seems a bit surreal. There were moments where it seemed like this day would never come, but it's also crazy to think that in no time we will be back in Los Angeles, with Chad getting ready for school and Michelle job hunting.

Well here we are again. Back in Hong Kong one more time. We decided for dinner we would do a greatest hits of all the random food we found the first time around. So we got our delicious dumplings and sweet buns and waffle.

After we got into Bangkok and finally made it to our hostel we went out to find food. If you watch this video you'll understand why 1. Chad and Brittany got so excited when they saw this and 2. I rolled my eyes A LOT in 24 hours. Also I'm sorry I just destroyed 10 minutes of your life.

Our last full day in Siem Reap, after all the temple exploration we were finally visiting the most famous ones- saving the best for last. At least we did it right. I rarely think waking up for a sunrise is worth it. I think sunsets are just as pretty and you don't have to wake up at an insanely early hour to see them. However, if you're visiting Angkor Wat it's worth it. It was amazing how many people were there wandering around in the darkness just to see the sun rise over the temple. This is just another time I wish pictures could really capture the beauty we saw.

Our second day being explorers we went to some of the outer temples - so we only got to see about 3 because we spent much of our time driving (tuk tuking) from one place to the next.

Okay, so I really was trying to do Siem Reap in just two entries, but we just saw way too many amazing things and had way too many memorable events happen, so it's just going to have to be three. Trust me there will be no one who hates this more than my editor. He's sick of editing all these posts. Which, I mean is tough because really the first draft is just me spewing words out without a lot of second passes or punctuation or even a real spell check run, so he does a lot of work here. (EDIT: I really don't).

We were quickly running out of time and in our research of Cambodia we learned that if you have to sacrifice your time somewhere it should be in Phnom Penh and not in Siem Reap so it's with a heavy heart that I tell you we only spent 1 day there. But we packed it with as much as we could.
