Cambodia day 5: Visit to CPCS
Our blogger, David Calamaro had this to share about the group's adventures on Day 5:
"Happy New Year, everyone! Today we started off 2020 appropriately with the testimony of Peace on our minds. We visited the Centre for Peace and Conflict Studies (CPCS) near Battambang, where we continued broadening our understanding of the later 20th century conflicts that Cambodia has faced, but with a focus on peace efforts and hope for continued rebuilding of the nation. A highlight of our visit was the time spent with several Buddhist monks, who both toured us while educating us about their daily life, striving to be free of desire. One of the exhibits is a mock UN Paris Peace Accords treaty, which marked the official end of the Cambodian-Vietnamese war. We all took turns “signing” the peace agreement. We also presented a gift to CPCS which we fundraised ahead of the trip.
"After a lunch of chicken, fried rice and bok choy (during which we live-streamed the ball drop in NYC), we drove several hours to Siem Reap, Where we freshened up at our hotel before dinner. Tomorrow: Angkor Wat!"
