blog #4 story

The Goddess of Water “Moni Mekhala” and an Ogre “Ream Eyso” both seek the magical powers of a hermit who accepts them both as students despite their differences. He offers a challenge to both, one who returns with a glass full of dew shall win. Each takes a different approach to the challenge. Moni Mekhala returns first, she was awarded a beautiful glass ball studded with jewels, and was taught to guard it wisely. Ream Eyso confident he would win returned to the hermit. Upon discovering he was second he ungratefully roared at him and also demanded a prize. The hermit awarded him an ax of solid gold. The Ogre was not happy, he tried to trick the Goddess out of her prize. He threw his ax in anger. As she dodged the ax, Moni Mekhala tossed her glass ball above her head. The ball left a streak so bright it blinded Ream Eyso, he continued to chase her as it started to rain. People listen for the thunder of the Ogre and look for the radiance of the Goddess’s magical ball. The never-ending chase continues in the sky before the rain comes.

The message is just a tale of one’s idea to explain what causes the lightening and thunder in the sky. Not necessarily any cultural items other than the names used. The story refers to an all knowledgable & magical hermit who teaches those who seek him and the struggle between good(Goddess) and evil(Ogre).

This article discusses Cambodian economy being transformed by the influx of Chinese funded investors thus robbing economic growth form the locals. Western based tourist industry  is being changed to Chinese based. China is coming into Cambodia with casinos, unless you are employed by the casino, it is difficult for other locals to make a solid income. Previous  Western based tourism was a means of livelihood for many people.

The country faces state of unrest as people are beginning to fail to provide income as they once had. They don’t necessarily lead the globe in any one issue. The impact of this issue doesn’t immediately affect us, but indirectly it may influence our choice of travel and where we spend our money. Overall do we appreciate traditional ideals in a country, or do we choose the new, fast and furious entertainment.

Cambodia

I have Cambodia but I didn’t actually pick it, I wasn’t here when we were choosing countries so Alexandra picked it for me.  I think it will be really interesting to learn about this country because the culture is very different from ours. I think it will be interesting to learn about how the people live and the different environment.  Some questions I have is I want to know the food is like? What are the most visited places?  What are the schools like?  What do people do for fun in Cambodia?
