World Cultures & Travel: Cambodia - Back from the Brink

  • Lebanon Senior Center 80 Tangent Street Lebanon, OR, 97355 United States

Professional travel photographer Donald Lyon introduces us to a welcoming people with an incredible tale to tell.  Cambodia is home to the mysterious and beautiful ruins of Angkor--almost lost to the jungle during  recent wars and Khmer Rouge occupation.  Now the Cambodia people are rebuilding their lives and their country with the help of non-profit organizations.  Fascinating history, delicious cuisine, reasonable prices and compelling personal tales make Cambodia a popular destination.  Lyon has made six trips in recent years to photograph and lead study tours for non-profit Friendship with Cambodia.
