Priceless moments

These four young girls were giggling and peeking around the door of the main vihara at Wat Prasat when I spied them. We had a game of hide and seek around and inside the vihara which I don't think overly impressed the young monk meditating but was good fun nonetheless. All around us the grounds of the pagoda were awash with people, and many had come up from Phnom Penh to be blessed by the head monk, Som Sim. It was a carnival atmosphere though the main vihara was largely ignored and was a sea of tranquility, until the giggling reached fever pitch as we chased each other around the pagoda! Sometimes the simplest moments are the most priceless.
