Cambodia: Funeral of King Father Sihanouk

Hundreds of thousands of mourners lined the way, but in my estimation the crowd was noticeably smaller and thinner crowd showed for the return of the King Father's remains from China 6 months ago. A dress code was fairly strictly enforced by minders and police – white shirt/blouse, black pants/skirt, black arm bands or ribbons, no hats, etc.

Casey Nelson blogs about the funeral scene for King Father Sihanouk, the beloved late King of Cambodia.
