After crossing the river with the buk, we drove for a little while before arriving at Wat Phu ground. It was getting dark really fast. We didn’t even get a chance to take good pictures. A couple of my aunts have never been to Wat Phu before and were happy to make offering to a statue on the first level of the steps.
I told my aunts and my cousins not to feel sad for not having a chance to climb up to the top level. I said to them that I will do my best to return to Wat Phu during the festival within a week or two and climb to the top level for my aunts and cousins.
