ss15 Jpeg 57K Me and Chris in the Cambodian throneroom. We're the two on the right of Queen Monique. I'm wearing a jacket of Khmer silk made by a friend. How sad ….
Chris and I at an audience with King Sihanouk and Queen Monique of Cambodia. The occasion was the First International Conference on Khmer Studies, held in 1996. If you look closely, I am wearing a jacket of pre-Khmer Rouge silk ikat. I presented a paper on Cognitive Categories.

It was very sad in Phnom Phen; the Throne Room, very large and stately, was still filled with damage from the Khmer Rouge era; bullet holes and mortar damage. The room, holding perhaps 400 participants, was cooled by a single electric fan. Living in Bangkok, and doing research throughout Thailand, does not prepare one for the poverty and pain in other, bordering countries.
