Last Saturday, I had an opportunity to go on a field-trip with the children of Aziza’s Place. It is a  home and learning centre for impoverished Cambodian children. Lately, there were opportunities for me to spend some time with the kids and help out and last Saturday, they invited me to join them in this fun activity. To know more about Aziza’s place, please click the link above.
We went to a farm in Kandal province, just an hour or so away from Phnom Penh.It was a welcome change of environment for me as I haven’t been out of the city for awhile.

The field-trip was a great opportunity for the kids to explore the world around them, in this case, the farm. The kids enjoyed the visit, looking at feeding farm animals, catching bugs and insects, catching fish the traditional Khmer way, and playing games. The farm was big and had a huge lotus pond as well.On our way to the pond, we passed by rows and rows of the climbing bottle-gourd plants. The yellow flowers caught my attention.
