Mood_Indigo_MKThe site of this indigo blue, late summer night sky was my reward for taking the red eye to New York this past June.  I so miss our precious little adobe airport, however I’m tickled we still get to walk to the plane on the tarmac! There is something wonderfully retro and charming about that.  It would have been even more perfect if Duke Ellington’s 1930, beautiful and timeless had been playing in the background.

Maison K, From Kimberly, Global Chic, Angkor Wat Cambodia, Part Hyatt Siem Reap
Park Hyatt Siem Reap

Angkor WatCambodia, was on my “must see” list for years and when I finally arrived, it did not disappoint.  Walking the ancient pathways and climbing the steep staircases of this massive and elegant temple was the thrill of a lifetime.  It is the largest religious monument in the world, built in the 12th century in what is considered classical Khmer style. It is surrounded by literally hundreds of other temples in the area, each with their own story. Originally, Angkor Wat was dedicated to the Hindu faith, later it became, and remains a Buddhist temple.

I stayed at what is now the  Park Hyatt Siem Reap.  The design, while contemporary is considerate of it’s local heritage and is a truly grand and serene hotel with exquisite service. An ancient banyan tree resides in the central garden where you can enjoy both French and Indochine cuisine.
