Carsten Höller: Decision / Cahoots / Pizza Pilgrims

The whole social media buzz around the Carsten Höller: Decision exhibit meant that when we went to London, it was on top of my list. As it is the middle of the summer holiday, London is even busier than usual, so we pre-booked tickets to be on the safe side.

It was a typical British day in London - grey and rainy. Arriving in the rain made me glad that we were spending most of the day inside where it'd be a lot drier.

We got to the Southbank Centre, collected our tickets, and ran across to the exhibit in the pouring rain, trying to avoid the growing puddles. 

Like the name of the exhibit, a decision had to be made right off the bat: path A or B? Whichever path you chose was equally dark and disorientating as the other. It was like being stuck in an air vent and you had to feel your way through to the end - whilst trying not to smash our face into an unseen wall, or each other. 

In the little booklet given to you, it explains that Carsten Höller wanted a special entrance to his exhibit to take the visitor away from the outside world and into his surreal world. 

At the light of the end of the tunnel you stumble onto a spinning mobile of sliced mushrooms. The whole exhibit is an interactive one, so you get turns in walking around and spinning the mushrooms, which is the most mesmerising thing to watch.

Crossing the border: Thailand to Cambodia

This section of the trip was possibly most stressful/the worst out of our travels.

Angkor, Cambodia -- photo diary

We arrived in Siem Reap early afternoon, and our hostel owner recommended that we visit Angkor Wat at sunset, then again the following morning for sunrise. We needed no further prompting and hopped into a tuk tuk. 

Unfortunately I didn't get any good photos of Angkor Wat at sunrise because closing time of the site and actual sunrise overlapped, so we could only view it from afar.
