As the gong sounded to begin classes again, this bunch of kids couldn't resist one last photo, despite the rain that was fallingThe children at a school in the grounds of the Khmer pagoda at Wat Prasat Kong, near Soc Trang left an indelible impression on Tim and myself when we stopped by to say hello recently. Lots more photos still to come from my Mekong Delta adventures but in the meantime here are two more from the kids at the school who were the noisiest and most welcoming of the many schools we stopped by on our 10-day travels. And they spoke better English than their teachers.
These three girls followed me throughout my visit to their school and to the nearby pagoda. I think they just liked to have their picture taken.
