Happy New Year to everybody! January was a very good month for us here in Banteay Chhmar. Our recently installed solar panels have helped save us a lot of money in fuel costs. We would like to thank Global Heritage Fund (GHF), Brija Robertson, Ryan Webster and Vannee H-Doeur for their donations for the solar panels.
We would also like to again send a thank you to Joseph Marino and Anthony Laurenza for their donations towards the purchase of a laptop computer for the CBT and the start-up costs for this website, which obviously wouldn’t exist without their help! Thank you!
Our friends and supporters from Global Heritage Fund, John Sanday and James Hooper, were here for almost two weeks working on the conservation project and speaking with visitors.
In January, we welcomed 47 visitors for the month including our first visitors from Ulan Ude, Russia!
