It is not often you see pictures of monks at Angkor like this...I took this on Friday evening, as the sun was going down at Bantay Sream. We saw a whole group of monks walking around the base of the temple, and from their postures you might have guessed they were factory workers waiting for the bus to take them home, and from the small clouds of smoke whirling in the heavy orange light, the impression was that they had had a long day indeed. When I asked him to take his picture, he put the cigarette down, but then I asked him to pick it up and he started laughing. So did his friend, who in poor English said something like "'re in trouble!" What was even better was the way all of them checked out Natalia as we walked away! Posted by Hello
