Upon landing in Hong Kong on our way to Cambodia, I checked my email. Waiting for me was a message from the Cambodian Visa Department. My heart sunk; what could be wrong? I was sure my papers were in order and we were all set for our visit to Siem Reap. I opened the message with trepidation. It said “ Happy Birthday, David Wessel. Best Wishes to you for a very Prosperous, Successful, Healthy and Happiness in your life.” Thus began our introduction to a gentle, kind and wonderful people who shared with us their culture and an architectural wonder that is unparalleled, known to the rest of world as Angkor Wat.
