Outside Tonle Sap, Cambodia

My husband and I went to southeast Asia on our three-week honeymoon back in October 2007, so the report is a bit older – and longer – than others. We spent three full days in Siem Reap and visited Angkor Wat (touring with a guide), visited a school supported by the Ponheary Ly Foundation and […]
