Heading for Siem Reap

I'm off to Siem Reap for the next three days/nights for work purposes and may not have the time to update my blog as usual. I'll try but can't promise. Looking forward to catching up with a few friends, to see Eric's 4Faces gallery for the first time and to pop into Angkor if I have time. Then I'll be back for football on Saturday and maybe a trip into the countryside on Sunday - I've missed my Sunday moto-rides into the beautiful rural landscape of the countryside and interacting with villagers who seldom see barang in their neck of the woods. It brings back in floods what I love about this country.

I've identified a few 'don't miss' events in Meta House's programme this month. This coming Friday will see the start of their Environmental Film Weekend with three nights of films looking at the struggles of wildlife, water and forests in Cambodia. Wednesday 10th has trafficking as its focus with the film Holly being shown. Sunday 14th has an unusual twist with Joel Montague presenting his postcards and posters from a bygone era in Khmer Ephemera. Wednesday 17th is a 'must see' with the Khmer Arts Ensemble recorded live in New York dancing the Magic Flute. Two days later on Friday 19th Cambodian Living Arts present two films, Gongs Across Borders and The Flute Player. On Wednesday 24th Nana Yuriko's Cambodia For Sale 1-hour documentary looks at forced evictions. Last but not least, Monday 29th will see the screening of a suprise film. I will let you know more details nearer the time but I urge you to get along anyway, even if you don't know what you'll be watching!
