TITLE: You No Buy, You Make Me Sad
AUTHOR: William J Wood Jr.
AVAILABILITY: Paperback and Kindle
Synopsis: Reads like a travel diary.
"You no buy, you make me sad," said the girls outside the temples of Angkor Wat, selling their tourist curios. I put on a kromah, the red and white scarf of the Khmer Rouge, grabbed a knife and said to a group of young Cambodians, "Grrrr, I'm Khmer Rouge." They laughed hysterically and took my picture.
