Another of my great pals in Cambodia is Rieng, who lives in Siem Reap and is an Angkor guide, policeman and all-round great guy. In January, we stopped off at his parents' home in the village of Prey Chrouk along Highway 6 and met a whole host of family members, including his mum and dad, grandad, two younger brothers and two sisters. Back in Siem Reap, Rieng and his wife Sovann, who live with her parents, Heng and Savoeung, always invite me round for a gorgeous feast and we were joined by Sovann's sisters and Narin, Rieng's brother. Find out more about Rieng here. Below LtoR: Narin, Kadka, Phyrun, author, Sovann.
