Photographer's Note

I met several of the monks while wandering through Wat Bo Langka, the largest working temple and monastery in Siem Reap. This guy and his friend were eating lunch on their porch and invited me to join them for some food. They spoke fairly good English and I found them to be intelligent and friendly. We found that virtually everyone we met in Cambodia was friendly.

Tourism is becoming increasingly important to the economy and many monasteries host foreign language schools. Some of the monks are teachers and many are language students that will spend a few years getting an education then move on to other things.

Yes, I know, his jet black hair disappears against the shadows in his doorway; his room has shutters, not glass windows.
