Cambodia: Leaving an Impression

There are so many young and poor children in Cambodia selling merchandise around Angkor Wat and other major temples. These children were particularly friendly. It was admirable how hard they work to sell even the smallest item.


I remember this one particular girl, who really left impression on me. She insisted on giving me a bracelet and a paper, on which she had drawn some colorful pictures, for free. There was nothing else to it. She just wanted to give me whatever she could despite her poverty. I recall thinking, “Wow, so poor yet she has such a big heart.” I still have that bracelet and paper, which reminds me of not only that girl but of her generosity.
