#tb the first time I went to Cambodia on a complete whim. Kind of a crazy place. A long story, but Cambodia was the reason I ended up in Vietnam, back to Cambodia via Japan, then Wales earlier this year. How? You just meet people. #sidequest#kampuchea
Day 16. Dreams... My number 1 dream is to work my way round the world, connecting with others through our shared commonalities & celebrating our differences. I want to promote this level of connection as I believe it will stop us fearing each other and produce empathy and understanding... if I can achieve this, utilising my degrees and making $$ then my dream will be a reality! This photo is of me starting to make this dream a reality, connecting with the beautiful people of Kampuchea at their celebration for Khmer New Year! We saw only 4 other tourists that day and the Khmer people we so accommodating, constantly encouraging us to join the festivities! On this day we connected on a spiritual level and it was truly beautiful!! #lmaaugust#lmaaugustphotochallenge#dreams#kampuchea#seimreap#connection
Vorn Vet, más conocido como "Camarada Thouk" fue un alto funcionario del Partido Comunista de Camboya, fue uno de los líderes de la revolución camboyana dirigida por Pol Pot y se desempeñó como viceprimer ministro de Kampuchea Democrática hasta noviembre de 1978, semanas antes de la invasion vietnamita, cuando fue arrestado y ejecutado por posible colaboracion con los vietnamitas. --------------------------------------------------------------------

Banteay Srei or Banteay Srey is a 10th-century Cambodian temple dedicated to the Hindu god Shiva. Located in the area of Angkor, it lies near the hill of Phnom Dei, 25 km (16 mi) north-east of the main group of temples that once belonged to the medieval capitals of Yasodharapura and Angkor Thom. Banteay Srei is built largely of red sandstone, a medium that lends itself to the elaborate decorative wall carvings which are still observable today. The buildings themselves are miniature in scale, unusually so when measured by the standards of Angkorian construction. These factors have made the temple extremely popular with tourists, and have led to its being widely praised as a "precious gem", or the "jewel of Khmer art." #banteaysrei#angkorwat#siemreap#visitcambodia#asean#southeastasia#indochina#travel#historybuff#history#kampuchea#solotravel#asia#ginanggang#tuktuk
