hugo,s birthday / by tina gonsalves

today we got presents for hugo. Hugo got a car and dinosaurs. He liked the dinosaurs and cars so much. He loves cars so much. When you opened the door of his car it would make a car noise. 

hugo had a ride in the car where we bought the present, and I want on this motorbike game.

We went off to go in a temple called Angkor Wat, and hugo lost his car. he was screaming. The temples were very old and so big. The temples were built about 900 years ago. They were originally built for Vishnu, a hindu god, but now it is buddhist. It was really cool and impressive. It was impressive because they didn't use metal or anything to hold it up. They didn't have all the tools we have today, so everything was done by hand. Its was made from sand stone and each brick had carvings on it.They used ten million stones.It took only 32 years to build and 30000 people worked on it and 6000 elephants.  It was really big - the biggest temple in the world. Heaps of the bricks were knocked down over time.  

this is me and a big temple.

In the 1100's england had castles but Angkor was part of the biggest city in the world with up to one million people living in the area. It was lived in for 600 years, and then everyone left and the jungle took over. They think left people left because there was a big drought and then people were hungry and thirsty.

this is where the oldest temple was. It was breaking into bits because it was old and there were big trees growing through it.

hugo was climbing up to get me. I was the jumping through the ruins. It was like parkour. My cousin does parkour and he has his own youtube account called Vstarfilms. It was fun jumping through the temples. Hugo was following me, trying to do the moves I was doing. He could really do them. I had to help him a lot. This was a fun time. The temples were awesome because of how they looked. They had heap of carvings, stairs and god heads everywhere.
