Young Nuns, by Ryszard Wierzbicki

I have decided to visit Cambodia, Siem Reap and Angkor for the third times. With my friend Ra Rath, who is a licensed travel guide in Angkor, we were exploring local villages and communities, in search of photography topics. We accidentally met these young nuns on a bike at a suburb of Siem Reap. Bald monks are very often can be seen in rural Cambodia. However, meeting young girls, who adapt Buddhism happens not very often. So, I was lucky to take there photograph.
