Greetings from Cambodia
Our new guide - don't know how to spell it but it's something like Suen - is our age. He had 12 brothers and sisters but now only knows where 4 of them are after the Khmer Rouge events in the 70s. His English is very good and he is very charming. He and the driver, Ret, pick us up in 30 minutes to take us to see Angkor Wat complex. I can't wait!!
The people here greet you by putting their hands in prayer position in front of their chest and bowing a little bit. I didn't know what to do in response, so I've just started doing the same...
