Extreme Web Surfs!

I've had an interest in the Khmer culture for some time; my church shares a building and several programs with a Cambodian church, and I've made a few friends who escaped the 'Killing Fields' , often losing their whole families first. It is a miracle, with what these folks went through, that they even have their sanity left..
Beauty and Darkness - recent Cambodian history
Pol Pot - Time magazine photo essay
Maoist Apologia for Pol Pot
Khmer Writing (& links to other Khmer language info..)
The Khmer Institute
The Khmer Network site ( in French)
Buddhism in Cambodia - tightly connected with national identity; see Angkor Wat
However, there are also Christian Churches as well; the Cambodian Evangelical Church is associated with my denomination, and I have had the privilege of meeting the District Superintendant , Mr. Nareth May
Khmer Neutral Party - website of this reformist political party
Cambodian Dance - the most prized national art form..
Cambodian Food - very tasty from what I've tried - especially the omnipresent Spring Rolls. For every function, the women make literally hundreds of these..smaller than Chinese, and crispy..a morsel of pleasure..
Death is better, a milder fate than tyranny.
