I had a wonderful opportunity to volunteer abroad in Siem Reap, Cambodia with a NGO. The first time I went with Alternative Breaks in May 2008. It definitely opened my eyes to the world outside my hometown. I met warm-hearted Khmer locals, and I enjoyed sharing our different cultures. Siem Reap is developing fast, and the Khmer work hard to provide for their family. But they also take the time to relax and share laughs with their friends and family.
Below are photos from my trip back to Siem Reap in May 2009.
