The time in Cambodia was highlighted by the interaction with people who were living and working in an everyday manner. As they operated they embraced us into their lives. It was wonderful to view however photographs fail to provide a total picture. I will refrain from displaying photos of people as I uphold to the view that exploitation of people is to be outlawed. Here are a couple of snaps that I thought were unique for this region.
We had the opportunity to visit a school to provide some pencils and paper for students. It was with heartfelt joy that we were able to add fun and laughter to the day as well as help out a little. Schools always need help as the adults of tomorrow learn and experience. We were extremely happy for this chance and thank our guide for making the arrangments.
The best way to see everyday life as well as the special sights in Cambodia is to arrange a guide. They take the hassle out of getting around and explain the detail of the temples and the sights. They also have insight having lived and worked as a local. The guide we had was really great and he helped us to maximise our time in Cambodia by taking us to our prefered list of temples along with offering us a chance to experience Cambodian life. He gave us great choices, noticed when we were hot or tired and offered us options. He took great photos which allowed us to soak up the experience. I would highly recommend this guided tour option. www.cambodianguide.com
