Angkor Wat area in a Nutshell !

Ironically today TripAdvisor listed Siem Reap Cambodia #8 of the top destinations to visit in the world, just as I was thinking to share a speck of the area in our backyard called Angkor Wat. To say that this is old is an understatement, to put it mildly. If anyone who has not ventured into learning about Angkor Wat, this is your chance to see a bit of it to jumpstart you.

 
Interestingly it took a tourist police guy at Bantrey Srei to show me a feature on my phone that I hadn’t figured out how to use. I’m suspecting the man has handled many a phone in his days there so he was really adept with what he did. So I’m told that usually the police aren’t much help when you may think you need them, but the tourist police have had high marks on the expat site here and this guy lived up to that statement. Yup, we all slipped him a buck or so for his time. He knew things and saw things that could have been easily missed.

Please enjoy some pictures of the area that were taken last week located on my Facebook page if you are interested. Thank you!

A New Learning Curve

Kok Kraul primary school was visited Saturday afternoon while school was still in session. It is located between three villages and houses 125 students. The unusual part of this is that this school advances all day school, with the children coming at 7:30am and going home at 4:00pm. I was told that this is the only school with this privilege, which apparently is a pilot program between the WFP and Feed My Starving Children. These children are given lunch thru the efforts of this program, which apparently came thru the Ministry of Education. This school does not have electricity as yet, though it stands on the roadway.

 

The norm throughout this country is that children either attend morning or afternoon sessions 6 days a week. Pastor Samuel would like to advance an English program into the school, which at this point has no English instruction for either the students or the teachers.
