Return of the King

Last October 15 the abdicated King of Cambodia, Norodom Sihanouk, died in Beijing China at the age of 89. It was during his time that the Khmer Kingdom flourished in Southeast Asia both in culture and in the arts. Phnom Penh, back then, was ready to take off as the cultural zenith of the region only to be thwarted by the Khmer Rouge.

As I am not a photojournalist, I don’t need take photos of people crying, the royal family crying and other dramatic stuff. I just want to describe, in general, what was happening when King Sihanouk returned to his home.
