Cruising down into the Mekong Delta

Dec 25, 2019 - The Jahan

For our last evening in Cambodia we had a very special performance and gift exchange with children from the Organization for Basic Training (OBT) followed by professional Apsara dancing on the top deck of the ship. In the morning, guest speaker Jean Michel Fillippi brought the history of Cambodia and the Khmer Rouge period into focus and began to illuminate the complex history between Cambodia and Vietnam. At sunset, we cruised down the Tan Chau canal, mesmerized by the massive aquaculture enterprises that flourish here.

Eza grew up outside of Washington, D.C. with parents that encouraged her to explore the United States extensively before adventuring abroad. After completing degrees in environmental science and economics from the University of Virginia she moved into a grass hut on the edge of the Sahara desert in Senegal, West Africa to serve as an environmental education volunteer for the Peace Corps.
