The people you bump into

With Sothy Tep this afternoon
I bumped into Sothy Tep and her husband John on my way home today and had an interesting chat about pretty much everything. We'd never met before but had befriended each other on Facebook! Sothy returned to live in Cambodia this year and stood in the recent general election, gaining a national assembly seat for the Rescue Party in Takeo. A teacher in the United States, it was her dream to make a difference in her homeland and this is the first step. She is one of only 25 female MPs in Cambodia, and as you might expect, she's ultra keen on improving the life of women in her country. She originates from Kompong Cham and went to live in the US when she was eight years old in 1983.
