As part of a fascinating National Trust Tour, we have joined some 20 other travelers in cruising the Mekong River in Vietnam and Cambodia over the past week. My first post from Vietnam followed my initial talk with the group around the differences between Eastern and Western conservation practices. Today I want to simply capture a number of images we’ve seen in this most intriguing and complex of places. The third post, to come in a couple of days, will examine how we respond to and help build understanding around sites with difficult and disputed histories.
I’ll post more scenes from Phnom Penh and Cambodia in the coming days.
More to come…
