Grains of Sand

The sandals were dusty, full of stories of rugged travel. Each grain of dirt and sand encapsulating a sensory cultural experience with some edges smoothed by the ocean of tenderness and hospitality of the Cambodian people, and others coarse and rough, underscoring the uncharted challenges we were yet to explore, and the difficulties of detachment from the western world. The strobe lights calling out your name from the screens of your phone were soon forgotten and replaced by the enchantingly friendly aura radiating from the Kampuchean people. When brought together, these grains form a beautiful beach of storytelling, friendship and adventure for yourself and others to enjoy.
