This weeks planned theme has taken a complete U-turn. It was supposed to be ‘old’ but I have replaced it with a series of shots which I captured this weekend in Cambodia. So please excuse me Bangkok, I hope you wont mind giving the children of Cambodia some of your webspace for this weeks post.
Three days in Siem Reap was a moving experience. Religion and spirituality reach into you as you step through temple ruins that date back thousand of years. Sadness and anger shadow you when you understand the extent of terror and tragedy that touched so many millions in the more recent past. Admiration and compassion compel you when you see the struggle and poverty that people living on the land and the sea face with every new season.
And through all of this emotion one thing overwhelmed me the most: The children. Their curious faces, their strength of character, and the fragility of their huge hearts.
