Yearly ceremony

The children from the CLCA strutting their stuff
It's that time of year again when the Hanuman office is visited by the youngsters from the Cambodian Light Children's Association orphanage to enact the Khmer New Year ceremony called Robam Trot, which originates from Stung Treng. Dressed up in traditional costumes, they symbolized chasing away any bad spirits and bringing prosperity by re-creating the hunting of a deer. They are welcome visitors every year. Khmer New Year this time around starts on Sunday 14th and carries on for the next two days.
