A View In Somrong Village

My Scholarship entry - A 'place' I have visited

I would like to tell you a story of a place that left a strong impression on me. 

Upon entering the Somrong village at Shoutnikom district in Siem Reap in Cambodia there was a boy whose gaze is fascinating. He had certain, sincere and naive energy about him. His name is Leengphour and he penitently waits for his mother to finish her work so that they can join the rest of the village at the ceremony. His mother is a tailor but during the weekend she sells meat so that her youngest child can attend school. Leengphour father is an English teacher in Somrong High school.
