Temple boy

Angkor, Cambodia, 2001: Met this boy while visiting one of the out-lying temples at Angkor.       This was way before the present day mass tourism to Siem Reap and nearby Angkor Wat.  He and about 10 other boys seemed to be residing within the temple complex itself , making a living guiding the few tourists who visited this remote temple. An ancient buddist nun seemed to be the matriarch of this family of sorts. We met her and the rest of the family within the temple sanctuary, lit incense to buddah, & made a donation of grubby notes from our cheap backpackers budget…  Canon EOS 100/28-105/Fuji Sensia
