I met this man up inside Angkor Wat. His job is to make sure the floors are clean. We exchanged greetings and I asked him a question about an inscription I read in one of the carvings on the temple wall (specifically about Preah Se-Ah Metrei, a promised coming savior in the Buddhist scriptures). Because the language is some type of Old Khmer, most of it cannot be read, but I was suprised to find that certain religious words can be made out. I asked him after talking if I could take his picture, he obliged, and there is the result.
