Sambor Prei Kuk Temple, Cambodia

This week, Pegman takes us to the Sambor Prei Kuk Temple in Cambodia.

Funny the places that the internet will take you…As I was working my novel-in-progress, I was trying to describe the abundance of humidity in a particular location. Which got me wondering where was the most humid location in the world? Which led me to Cambodia (among other places). And when I happened to land here, I couldn’t resist selecting this as a Pegman destination. Hope you find it inspiring too.

Your mission is to write a 150-word (or less) story about the selected destination. Feel free to wander about. You may capture your own photo to use in your post. Feel free to select from any street view or photo sphere in the vicinity.

Have fun and don’t get lost!

Samjiyon, North Korea… or not

This week Pegman takes us to Samjiyon, North Korea…maybe.

When I scouted this location several days ago to prepare the post, there was no street view (unsurprisingly), but there were a half-dozen photo spheres on the North Korea side. The one I’ve provided above no longer works on the map when you search North Korea, and all but one of the photo spheres have vanished! If you zoom out you may still be able to get to a hotel room, lobby, or parking lot. All these are eerie, empty. And who knows, these locations may be taken down by the time you reach this prompt.

If that’s the case, you’re invited to select something from one of the photospheres across the border in China at the Tianci Tourism Holiday Village, where things seem considerably more lively.
