Cambodia's Temple City
Last weekend I made my first trip to Cambodia. Like countless other travelers, my primary reason for visiting was to see Angkor Archaeological Park, an enormous complex containing more than 300 Hindu and Buddhist monuments built between the 9th and 13th centuries. What struck me about the site though, other than the scale of the architecture itself, were the thousands of Khmer people eking out a living in the shadow of a ruined city; a former capital considered to have been one of the largest and most prosperous in Southeast Asia.
