APAD 060: Sleeping soundly under the shady tree

We hired this tuktuk to take us around the Angkor Wat complex in Siem Reap province some years ago. We stopped to look at the temples and when we came back this is what we saw. The tree provided shade to the tuktuk, while the driver slept soundly on a hot summer day. He might already be in dreamland at the time I took this photo so we decided not to wake him up. It didn’t take awhile before he woke up though, and so, we were on our way to see the other temples in our itinerary.
