Photographer's Note

Taken on the bridge/walkway that leads to the main entrance of Angkor Wat.

There were three of these wee kids, jumping happily into the water to the delight of the watching tourists - and, I'm glad to say, many of them would give these kids a donation as they clambered up to repeat their antics.

This was my first trip to Cambodia and there were many heartbreaking scenes. However, for a period of time at least, these kids seemed to be having fun and were rewarded in the process.

I cannot imagine ever living a life as tough as these kids, but at the same time when I saw the unadulterated joy on their faces, even if only for a few minutes, I wished I was a child again.
