Cambodia: Khmer 101


This video gives you an introduction to the Khmer language – thanks to my good friend Prosper! I don’t think I’ve focused enough on the positive aspects of Cambodian culture, and I really want you to know how beautiful and friendly the Cambodian people are. (If my voice seems a little raspy, it’s because I’m just getting over a cold. Prosper is making me drink this medicinal ginger, lime, and honey concoction every day. So no worries, I’m in good hands!) Enjoy the lesson! By the end you should have basic Khmer words down, and even a few curse words…

Gail, thanks for your videotaping expertise!

      Hi Gail! Ooo I’m glad someone interesting is filling my room! I just spent a week teaching english in Sembalun, lombok. It was the most challenging experience I’ve had. The way women are treated is so different from what were used to. The post is coming soon! Right now I’m waiting for a friend from the states to join me on gili Trawangan! She booked a spontaneous ticket last week! Well be here for a few days and then back to ubud! Were staying at kunang kunang :). What’s the name of that cafe you were saying I should go to? I hope you’re enjoying PP and Friends still! Peter comes soon! Xoxo Lauren
