CSAN partied with Rainbow Bridge

January 28th, 2008 · 2 Comments

A Japanese association that has sent Japanese volunteers to Cambodia to help educate Cambodian children in rural areas invited Cambodian students to join a party January 26.

Rainbow Bridge initiated the informal event in order for Japanese students and workers interested in Cambodia and Cambodians interested in Japan, where they are staying, to exchange and learn from each other their national culture. Also, it was meant for the Cambodian students studying in Nagoya and the Japanese to make friends with each other.

The association invited 10 Cambodian students and about 10 Japanese joined. They all helped each other cook both Cambodian and Japanese dishes, ate together and took quiz about Cambodia prepared by the Cambodian side and that about Japan by the association.

At the end of the event, the association showed a video they made of them volunteering to educate children in Kompong Speu about health related problems and how to stay healthy.

Rainbow Bridge invites Cambodian students to events like that about once or twice every year.

It has its office in the Royal University of Phnom Penh (RUPP) back in Cambodia, according to Mr. Yamada, the president of the association.

    Hi Arlene,Thank you so much for following my blog. I have just stretad it and I am glad when hearing some responses from other bloggers. About Thale Wack (the stamp), Thale means the sea, and Wack means being apart. As you can see in the stamp that the sea is separated by the sand. So you can walk through and have the sea on both sides of you. Arlene, I surely would like to swap with you.

    I traveled to Cambodia this smemur and, among other places, visited Angkor Wat. An incredibly knowledgeable and kind guide, Yut showed us around and offered a perfect amount of information, leaving us well informed but not overwhelmed. His charming, warm personality and wonderful sense of humor added entertainment to our day. We loved our time at Angkor Wat and especially with Yut!Darien, ConnecticutUSA
