Postscript: View from the Bangkok-bound train

Somewhere between Aranyaprathet and Bangkok, Thailand, the view from the train shows carabaos crossing rice paddies as the sun sets. Pretty much like the Philippines, Thailand's vast countryside is filled with rice fields like this one which could be a delight to Westerners. Had I chosen to take the plane from Siem Reap, Cambodia to Bangkok, I wouldn't have seen this. But taking the plane wasn't really an option since I am traveling on a tight budget. ;-)
