Ponheary on CNN

June 18th. Not sure about air times; I reckon it depends on where you are but it's the CNN Heros Series. Ponheary has been nominated for the award and they came to do the story, examining her personal history and the work of the Ponheary Ly Foundation.

At the moment details are sketchy but will post as I get them.

Here's the link to the website where they will post her with the other nominees after the show airs.

They spent the day with us at Angkor Thom, Bang Melea and Koh Ker school and village, that's why I'm posting this in a travel forum. Heh.

Looking forward to seeing this well deserved tribute. Hope it can make more people aware of the situation and help raise more money for the cause. You two deserve all the kudos that can be given, good luck!

Aloha!

That's exciting! BTW - did you ever contact NPR's "The Story" to see if they would do a piece? http://thestory.org/

I'll be in Las Vegas. Do they even get CNN in Vegas? If so, forget poker and the other distractions, I'll be glued to CNN all day.

Well, I'm not sure I'll be rooting for Ponheary but, somewhere off the coast of Norway, I'll certainly be watching AND voting. lol.

Lori - might see you late July if you're in town. I have a yen for the Jayarvarman.

"off the coast of Norway" - another cruise? Or are you referring to the British Isles?

Think Flam. Another sweet Death by Azamara. In London right now, fresh from an interesting evening. Think Tap. Think Novello. Google. You'll work it all out.

Now, back to Ponheary, who deserves far more attention than I do.

The Hurtigruten mail boat?! All herring all the time. Nothing happens in Flam. The boat ride on the Naerofjord is nice. Those royalties keep pouring in. Must be nice...

Don't need to google, already figured London. Am considering whether to spring for a ticket in Montreal in July. Could use a little Norwegian cool weather right now myself - sweltering in NC.

Gotta move Norway to Asia, not a big deal since Australia's already made the move, or craft a new widget, so we can follow along. Tell us about your glamorous return to the days of old...

Lori, I saw this the other day on the Asia board. I don't know Ponheary, but good on her (and you!)

Since all those who know her or likely to become involved with this organization would find them by way of the Asia board, I totally do not get why it's been thrown over here into no-man's land in the Lounge.

I agree with dogstar. The mods really need to be hired/chosen from those who understand a bit more about the content they've been asked to administer. In other words, travel and destinations. C'mon admins... for heaven's sake. Anything remotely chatty is relegated here? Could you make your travel forums any more tedious that way?

More importantly, Cambodia NEEDS organizations like this one and those organizations need to be found by people doing trip planning. It's not chit chat, it's about travel and respect for the destinations - what you need of them and what they need of YOU.
