Thanks for the compliment, Roel.

I found the Vietnamese and the Cambodians, in particular, to be incredibly gracious and tolerant of strangers traipsing through their villages taking pictures of them, their children and their homes. Few Westerners would put up with it.

No one asked anything from us, except the children (and a few adults) wanted to see their image on my LCD after I photographed them. This really helped to break the ice. Another asset was flipping out the LCD and shooting from the waist to be at eye-level with the kids and seated adults. I think it was less intrusive than hiding my face behind the camera.

Cheers
