Waterfall preparation.

Today was a free for the volunteers and most of them opted to join me out at one of Cambodia’s most sacred sites. Phnom Kolin! There is a temple at the top of the mountain which has a huge Buddha and was an amazingly glimpse into the spirituality of the Cambodians. Then we went down…



We say farewell to KID TEA

It makes you really proud to see the work that the volunteers were doing and with…

After the volunteers were introduced to this, they were eager to get…



A few goodbyes and many Hello’s

The volunteers went to Annadaya Restaurant where the chef showed them how to prepare, cook, and beautifully plate a four course meal. To start, the chef took…
