Despite not getting to Angkor Wat, Cambodia ended up offering me a few good experiences. On the last Friday evening I went out for a bit of culture. Not the classical dance, unfortunately, which is hard to find in the capital, but a performance by an arts group of what they called 'Hanuman and the big drum'. There were actually two very big drums, two quite big drums, and a number of smaller drums and gongs. Not to mention a few other traditional instruments (not sure what they are called, but the Cambodian equivalents of the West African balafon and njarka). The drumming was excellent, and was accompanied at one point by some very good male dancers.
