I’ve noticed that children are keen to play an active role in family life in Cambodia. This little girl helps out by peeling mangos and bananas which are then sugared and dried out in the sun to make delicious dried fruit ‘crisps’. The fruit are sold to the community and in the nearby town as a way to make a living. On a recent cycling tour with my guide Lida, I was able to meet a few families that make a living through selling true organic produce this way, I became an instant fan of their delicious banana sticky rice! 🤗
Competition dancing is an incredible investment of time and resources. Our local dance team/family is led by local women who came up through the competition scene and with talent and hard work were able to leave the ‘valley’ and dance in New York City. They returned to this area with all of their experience and expertise and have created a studio built on professionalism and friendliness. They hold themselves and the girls to a high standard, and in turn, we all benefit. .

The snow is gone but let me milk the beautiful unfiltered snow photos for a few more days at least. Surely this is what Instagram was made for! (Well also bad memes and people taking photos of their arse to flog protein shakes) #sneachta#kilkenny
