A reminder

The obligatory fam trip team photo in front of the 'tree temple' as everyone called it
As a reminder to myself that I need to post some more pictures from the Sambor Prei Kuk trip, here's two team photos to keep your interest up. Obviously I didn't take a separate photo of the male members of the fam trip, and why would I? Much more to follow, but I'm off to work soon. Yes, you heard me, its water festival here in Phnom Penh and I'm working today. Pound of flesh or what. Before I forget Bruno Bruguier will be giving a talk about Sambor Prei Kuk at the French Cultural Centre this coming Thursday to co-incide with the release of his new book on the temples in the Tonle Sap region. It'll be in French, as is the book. I'm double-booked that night, so I'll probably miss it. Anyway, I don't speak or understand French, so maybe it's a blessing for all concerned.
Another team photo, this time the ladies from the fam trip though Linda isn't here as she was still scoffing her lunch

All,
I am fine. I was at home last night. The size of the crowds this year seemed to be greater than I've seen before, so I opted to stay home.
I really appreciate your concern. Our thoughts must go to those who have suffered loss in this tragedy.
Phnom Penh is in a state of shock this morning.

Hi Cham,
thanks for suppporting my Blog.

that particular temple is called Prasat Chrey or N18 at Sambor Prei Kuk - it's host to a spreading strangler fig and makes for a great picture.
