” I am orphan, my Mum died from malaria, my Dad was killed by the soldiers of the Red Khmers. I teach french and english lessons in my village”. Kimlhet was my guide to visit the Angkor ruins, and he spent the full day with me for …$10… when time came to have lunch, he brought me to a little place in the middle of the jungle, he started going to the kitchen side, I could tell he wanted to have a great plate of chicken and rice with me but he was too discreet to show it. Kimlhet proposed to show me a quiet place where four monks were praying while singing; he started to play that instrument, with that impressive smile on his face. I admired him. I still do.

@ Angkor, Cambodia
