On my visit to Cambodia with the youth volunteers of Rakan Muda in 2006, I spent time in 2 villages, Kampung Kandal and Kampung Thom. During my stay in Thom, the volunteers were busy building a community center. There were kids running all over the place, hugely fascinated by these foreigners in their midst.
One interesting person caught my eye. This person would sit around all day watching the construction. You can hardly catch a smile out of him (actually you can’t catch any hint of a smile out of him). It was quite daunting in the first few hours or so but he soon become part of the local scenery. I took this image of him. I imagine if you take the time to go to Kampung Thom in Cambodia, you can still see him sit at that exact same spot….
