water water everywhere

Where is the Tonle Sap?  In Siem Reap of course, the home of Angkor Wat!  The Great Lake of Cambodia. Only the largest fresh-water lake in SE Asia and the richest fishing lake in the world. The monsoon season brings torrential downpours and immense flooding while during the dry season, the lake becomes a playing field for the children. It’s quite a visual.

It seems we’ve entered a world in which time has forgotten. The floating village of Chong Khneas was something you will never see in any guide book. The primitive faces of the villagers were so sad.  And the begging…. This day will certainly be etched in the memory of us all.
