The most beautiful smile in Cambodia
Posted by: mihoko
Have you ever been to Cambodia?
I visited there two times. Normally people go to Cambodia to see Angkor Wat.
But my special memory in Cambodia isn’t sightseeing..
A few years ago,I visited one of orphanages in Siem Reap..
Director of this orphanage(left) and Tuktuk Driver(right) who took me there.
Before I went there,I worried a lot... 'How can I communicate with children..??'
So I tried to learn Cambodian a little to introduce myself to children.
But when I met children in orphanage, I didn’t need to speak a lot..
They smiled and welcomed me. We became friends straightaway.
I also tried to play instruments of Cambodia…
I didn’t know how to play at all…but children taught me and sang together!
Children knew English. Sometimes they talked to me in Cambodian.
I remember one Cambodian word which all of children told me a lot.. ‘Sonsa ’
I didn’t understand what it meant then, but afterward I found out what they said.
Children wanted to ask me… 'Do you have a boyfriend?'
Children must be lonely a lot, but they kept smiling with me.
Their smile was really pure and innocent..it made me happy!
After I met children in orphanage, I made up my mind..I'll always smile like them.
