Every visitor to Cambodia will remark on the cute kids that can be found everywhere in this country. Okay, some of them can be a little pushy along the riverfront in Phnom Penh or at the temples of Angkor, but most are just as cute as they come. Tim and I encountered hordes of them on our recent travels to the south coast and we rarely miss an opportunity to interact with them, from pulling funny faces, to playing football, shuttlecock-keepy-uppy and badminton. And a big beaming smile of white teeth is sufficient reward for all the effort, especially on a hot day. Here's some of the cutest we met on our recent travels.
