Photo Friday: Street Kids in Phnom Penh

Street kids selling flowers in Phnom Penh, Cambodia

When I think about the time we spent in Phnom Penh, Cambodia, I always remember these two sweet, silly sisters. Each afternoon, they roamed the streets selling bracelets made out of flowers. After we had been town for a few days, we started to look familiar, and they would play games with us - tapping us on the back and then running around to the other side before we turned, or generally being silly.

These girls were too sweet to resist, and instead of giving them money we took them, almost daily, to a restaurant where we bought them a warm meal and some juice. Who knows where they are now? In my mind they haven't aged, and the school we're building is for them.

Please come back on Monday to see the list of fabulous prizes you can enter to win just for making a $10 (or more) donation to help build the Passport School in Cambodia

    The kids of Cambodia really know how to have a lot of fun with very little. A couple of sisters at Angkor Wat are among my strong memories of Cambodia too. Good luck with the school, those kids are a very worthy cause.
