The Cham Village

After the fish farming, we stopped at a small Cham village off the Bassac River (part of the Mekong system). The Cham people are adherents to Islam, something not very common in Vietnam and Cambodia. Their village seemed remote and olny accessible from the river, but a stroll through the main path led straight to a main street with a mosque only a few hundred feet away. the people were beautiful, make maginficent cloth, and as you can see by the video, loved Lori's gum.

  1. loved the video... this reminded me a lot of when I was on the service trip to Mexico and gave kids gum and candy... it is amazing how sometimes the littlest things can bring so much joy.
