    There mus be a lot to smile about in Cambodia these days because even the statue is smiling. Wow! Great way to capture its people.

    Great shots! I definitely agree with you. The Cambodians I met (in the north, along the Mekong) were some of the friendliest I’ve encountered in all of southeast Asia (and even the the world). Also they were kind to me and treated me honesty. Many of the people I met didn’t have a lot of money, but they did have a lot of dignity.

    1. Hey Stephen, I totally agree with you. I also felt that way in Bangladesh as well. It’s such a rewarding experience and I found it rubbed off on me as well – feeling a lot more relaxed and easy going.
