Taken at Ta Prohm Temple, Angkor Wat, Cambodia (AKA the Tomb Raider Temple)
Pictures of children taken at a floating “school” on Tonle Sap Lake. They bring boats of tourists there and try to pressure them into buying $40 bags of rice.
The classroom of the floating school. Nice uniforms and backpacks, but there didn’t appear to be much learning going on. Plus we were there over Tet, which kids in the rest of Indochina get off for school I believe.
All these cute kids knew thumbs up.

Something like 12% of kids in this area of Cambodia die before the age of 5 from malnutrition.

A little girl paddling around by a floating tourist shop asking for dollars. She had a little cup she’d use to bail out the water every once and a while.
