Hi Craig and Jeane,

Loved your photos! Especially of the one looking down at Angkor Wat temple taken from the helium balloon...picture perfect! Great to re-visit some of these places through your eyes.

Also adored all of your photos of the children taken at the Kong Moch Primary School which you visited with Ponheary Ly. As Lori said to me once, chances are you will always remember the bright shining faces of the children that day far more than you will remember the faces at the Bayon (considering how remarkable those were too!). Thanks for sharing!

Great photos, but there must be some sort of penalty due.

Craig, Loved your photos, especially those of the children at the primary school in Cambodia. The picture of the waterfall into the turqouise pool below it from Luang Prabang is almost identical to the photo we took there & now have as the screen saver on our computer! What camera did you use?

Craig - LOVED your pictures - have been waiting for you to post them! And yes, a penalty may be in order, although perhaps you redeemed yourself given the quality! Especially enjoyed the Luang Prabang shots - where were the tubing pictures taken? Also loved the one at the floating market with the woman's foot in the water. But the school ones were probably my favorites. Maybe I'll put a few more of our school shots out on my site (I tried to be highly selective).
I immediately picked out several favorites from among yours - especially liked the extreme close-up of the two girls. Also the one with the man who had stumps for teeth. The joy on some of the faces was palpable. As you mentioned earlier, I think "your" school kids were a little better off than the school we visited. They seemed to be cleaner and have nicer clothing. Regardless, the experience was amazing, as I'm sure it was for you - and your pictures brought my own trip back to life for me. Thanks so much for sharing.

Lovely pictures, Craig. How was it, looking at the Angkor Wat? Did you take any pictures inside the Angkor Wat?

Thanks all for your wonderful comments. I will be doing a presentation with these same photos to my Rotary club tomorrow - if I hadn't had that deadline, they might never have been organized and posted...

Most of the photos were taken with my Canon A95 which I like very much except that the zoom is only 3X. Jeane uses the heavy artillery, a Canon EOS 20D - she took many of the close-ups of the Cambodian kids.

Jeane's photographic priorities are more artistic than mine and she took some photos of the architectural detail inside Angkor Wat and some of the other temples. I did not include these and many others in the set. We had over 1000 photos to sort through and I wanted to show those that would best communicate the experiences we had on our trip.

Thanks for much for sharing! As a retired teacher, I can really appreciate the smiles on the faces of the children.

Have fun sharing at Rotary, Craig. I just did a "Where in the World is Carol..." program for a college for seniors in my town. I get to relive my travels everytime I do this "show."

Craig and Jeane: Love all your pictures of Thailand, Sieam Reap and Laung Prabang, but those of the kids in school were outstanding. Thanks for sharing. I will like to publish mine's but need help of how to do it.

Karen - the tubing pictures were taken from LP - it is the Nam Khan River which runs into the Mae Khong and forms the LP penninsula.

Craig - yes, I noticed that in the caption, but was that particular spot out of town or just down over the bank from LP? We didn't get over to that side much - spent more time on the Mekong (or Mae Kong) side. Did you try tubing? I didn't remember reference to that in your trip report - am wondering if I missed part and need to go reread it!

That particular spot was in town a block or two off the main road. It was a Sunday afternoon so all of the locals were out there. You'd have to pay me big bucks to get in that river though .

Oh, true. I wouldn't get in the river either. Yikes. Some things are best enjoyed from afar. I didn't even touch the bottle at the whiskey village that had the snake in it.

I must say your pic's are gorgeous of BKK, Luang Prabang and Siem Reap..Originally when i posted i had only looked at your India pic's..

What kind of camera do you have?..Your pic's look far superior to mine!!

I must say the Bed Supper Club in BKK looks alot different than i thought it would be..Will have to check it out next time..

Very nice..

The site listed at the beginning of this thread is out of business. I have posted these photos on a new site. Here's the link:
