First Lectures, Museum and Palace Field Trip

This is the second of four new blog entries (being posted over a 24-hour period), catching up chronologically with the intial days of the SST Cambodia group.

On Tuesday of their first week in the country, students enjoyed a field trip to the Royal Palace, Silver Pagoda, and National Museum. We took our first group photo on the steps of one of the building at the National Palace. Lectures in that first week included input from Heng Monychenda on Angkor Culture and from Neb Sinthay on Contemporary Cambodian Politics.
