I’m in Battambang trying to figure out why there are so many aid organizations here. Hopefully, I get a chance to see a couple of the good ones in action.
I will be visiting the former Khmer Rouge capital of Pailin tomorrow with a fella from MAG, one of the mine removal organizations in the country.
The mine fields are well-known and marked, so no, mom you don’t have anything to worry about. Mostly we will be talking to the villagers about how the mines and/or their removal changed their lives.
I’m going to say NOW that I’ll be away from the computer, but the widespreadness of the internet never ceases to amaze me. Who knows? Maybe you’ll hear from me tomorrow.
