Happy New Year to everyone!
January has been a very quiet month here in Banteay Chhmar. Despite the quietness, the villagers are still busy with the cassava harvest. This crop serves as an important dry season crop and source of income. The cassava is mostly exported and processed into biofuel. It is also used in food production.
We have gotten off to a very good start with visitors this year. In January, the CBT welcomed more than 100 visitors. We are looking forward to greeting everyone who can come and visit us this year.
And, one more note. The road from Sisophon to Banteay Chhmar is in good condition now. The drive should only take about one hour.
