Island life

A few portrait pictures from Koh Dach island. A short tuk-tuk drive and a ferry ride from central Phnom Penh, in the middle of the Mekong, it’s a little rural oasis within sight of the city. It reminded me a little of the island in the Red River in Hanoi – I had the same feeling of sudden welcome escape. I would have liked to have spent a good while wandering through the villages on the island, but my visit was cut short by the inevitable afternoon thunder storm.

    Wow I love these! Having recently taught in Cambodian villages, these portraits really remind me of some of the great characters I met. I hope the monsoon rains don’t cause you too much trouble. (:
