Sodany and actually she was very good. She's been a guide for the last 3 years and her English was pretty good, even though she kept apologising for her vocabulary. I felt she knew the temples well, I learned a couple of things from her despite the fact that I've been to the site many times, her guiding style was very pleasant and I think she will do very well as an English-speaking tour guide at SPK. It's important that the guides at a location like Sambor are particularly knowledgeable about the temples and history of the site, as they are located at the temples all day, every day and are better placed to divulge intimate details of SPK than any guide that has to travel from Siem Reap or Phnom Penh. Sodany certainly fits that bill and with more experience I'm sure she'll become even more of an asset to the community and the temple site itself.
