Photographer's Note

Lisa's "Sunburnt Country" picture reminded me of this one from our trip in eastern Cambodia.
I thought I had already posted it, but I haven't, so here it is...

A sign of hope.
Sometimes difficult to find,
but it's always there.


Mondolkiri is in the far east of Cambodia on higher ground, mainly towards the Vietnamese border. A growth of coffee and other plantations has lead to recent development of the area, e.g. making it more accessible. On the other hand, that's bad news for the way of life of the region's indiginous cultures and most of the money will go to foreign-owned companies anyway.
