I went on a trip to Cambodia recently to help document a charitable education development project. What I saw and the story behind the journey is absolutely incredible and I will share it in this blog later this year.
In the mean time I’m posting a few of the candid shots captured outside of the project work.
Cambodia is only 1 hour from Bangkok, but it is different in so many ways. The way of life is similar due to the agricultural society, but the simplicity seems accentuated in Cambodia. Regulation and systems appear less structured than Thailand (in everyday life on the streets).
Most of all, the people have a different aura about them. Thailand has never been invaded in all of history, whereas Cambodia has experienced rule by Thailand, Vietnam, even the French and the Portuguese. More recently the people suffered the terrible oppression and tyranny under Pol Pot and the Khmer Rouge.
