Thank you Cambodia. Thank you TLC.
See you soon.
My name is Eashwarran Kohilathas and I am a British doctor. I have currently been working for The Lake Clinic (TLC) for 2 weeks now and have approximately another 140 days with them.
El Nino came to Cambodia and was merciless in its intensity and duration. On land there were villages throughout the country to which water needed to be trucked in by the military. On the Tonle Sap Lake lower water levels meant that less of the forest would be flooded, lessening the size of the “nursery” for the migrating fish which will lead to smaller fish yield is 2017.
Looking to incorporate some “off the beaten path physical activity” into our three week adventure through Laos, Vietnam and Cambodia my husband and I enjoyed a guided kayak excursion of Tonle Sap. We kayaked through the colorful maze of stilted homes in the community of Kompong Khleang. We watched and waved at boats full of children who floated by us on their way to school.
