My Q and A with Dana Hui Lim author of Mother and the Tiger- A Memoir of the Killing Fields. - essential background information
Peter, like all the work shop participants, is just starting to learn English. Unlike European languages, the structure and grammer of the Khmer language does not share Latin roots with English, making it very hard to master. The two languages do not even share a common alphabet and Khmer is written from left to right.

"How We Feel When We Are Travelling"
People like travelling when they’re having a holiday.
They want to know the differences between places. They want to show how they are feeling when they are visiting the places that they don’t know.
For me, when I am travelling I want to see a lot of things that I have never known before and I want to know exactly what that place is like. How surprised I would be when I see that place!
Actually people travel for different reasons, but especially for me, I travel to know many things. What new kind of animal will I see? Are all the people the same? How many types of buildings can I see? Is it a good place for me to visit? I want to answer all of these questions, but can I really imagine the new place?
