We wanted to go to Cambodia to see the historic and beautiful temples, the most famous being Angkhor Wat, pictured above at sunrise.
Just being in Cambodia was pretty unbelievable for someone my age, who remembers the war images on TV as a kid. But, Cambodia had so much more to offer than I imagined
But, then an entire village on stilts came into view. They had everything, a school, a town hall, a couple restaurants and even one hostel. But, mostly there were many families living there.
The people who rowed the boats were mostly women. And when we got into our boat, we heard a baby crying nearby and soon found out it was our driver's baby. She paddled over to a group of waiting boats, picked up her baby and placed him in between her folded legs. I can barely sit with my legs folded, much less paddle a boat that way.
Next week, as soon as the Edwardian Dress is released, I'm preparing some blogs to show how I made my pattern, how I sewed the dresses and how to do your own custom variations.
