Cambodia is not just a land of temples, but it's one of expressions...
And then some more....
No wonder why they have so many dances, expressing their many moods.
There's the shyness of a just-married couple...
There's the 'Daiii' of a Hanuman ready to protect the Apsaras
There's the surprise of an Asura who's been attacked by Hanuman
There's the tight-lipped and alluring smile of the Apsara
The irritation of the farmer's wife at the village toddy seller
The exuberance of a couple in love
The playfulness of a Chinese origin dragon
The slinky seductiveness of a snake
The delicate tip-toedness of a peacock
The self-assuredness of three potential suitors
The valour of a Khmer warrior in the making
The spirit of dancing open-heartedly no matter what the occasion ...
Cambodia is truly the land of expressions, the land where a smile can cut right through the self-constructed tower of Babel that the foreign traveller brings along.
