Cambodia: Loving Cambodia

Vannadeth, a Cambodian citizen living in Germany is pained by the error he finds in the geographical area of his country listed on a website. The blogger talks about his feelings for his country.“How do you feel when people as you ” Is Cambodia safe now from bombs?” This is the very direct question that a foreigner ask me. During the World Cup, when people ask me where I come from. I told them proudly that I am from Cambodia. Most of them do not even know where Cambodia is. They know all neighboring countries of Cambodia, but they don't know Cambodian. Some even asked me back if Cambodia was an island.”
