Lots of Commemorations

Yesterday was the last day of Khmer New Year. The Year of the Rat. I’m a rat… 5th cycle… I wish you a very happy New Year 2552. People were celebrating at the pagodas (VIJ2008028):

Today at Chhoeung Ek was the 33rd commemoration of the Khmer Rouge conquering Phnom Penh. Some 800 people attended a ceremony at the killing fields (VIJ2008029)…

    For me your news website is going to be online newspaper. Perfect. Cambodia is on top on my trip list, so I will have great place to learn about!

    Happy new year! Mr. Rat

    ps. If now is The Year of the Rat… what was last year?
