Just another Barrang

Decidedly bored with my lack of social life, I decide to throw myself in at the deep end. I went solo to the 15th anniversary of Friends International at their restaurant the Romdeng. It serves amazing Khmer food and the workers are former street kids in vocational training. Finding only ... read more

Rice fields. As far as the eye can see. That pretty much describes the countryside outside of Phnom Penh and Khmer eating culture in general. Khmer’s will eat rice for breakfast, lunch and dinner. Noodles can be an adequate exception, but even porridge is in fact rice porridge.   So, ... read more

Getting lost

After a week of living and working in Phnom Penh, I decided it was time to get a little lost. This decision inevitably came at the time when I got my apartment within walking distance of the office and my benefactor for the first week left Cambodia, me and my ... read more

Devastation and Hope

I have two stories to share: one is a story of devastation and one is of hope. Today Haydin and I went to Tuol Sleng Genocide Museum and the Choeung Ek Killing Fields in Phnom Penh, Cambodia. As with my visit to the Auschwitz Concentration Camp in Poland, I find ... read more

Pallas Athena Visits me on the Beach (Sihanoukville, Cambodia, Mid-May)

  Sihanoukville is the biggest of a handful of beach towns scattered along Cambodia’s small stretch of coastline. The backpacker hangout, Serendipity Beach, is a tawdry version of the French Riviera where the beaches are lined with dilapidated beach chairs and tattered, mismatched parasols. Every inch of the beachfront is occupied by ... read more

"Dogura" has no script, plot, or actors. As a feature-length film by French filmmaker, Patrice Leconte, it offers scenes of Cambodian daily life and cultural practice. Similar to "Baraka" and the "Qatsi" trilogies, "Dogura" beautifully captures people from a quiet and observing eye.
