Sky of Cambodia
The wings of my soul
Hello from a childhood. The second week I see the kites flying on the sky of Sihanoukville . Running around with them flocks of Khmer children 5-10 years old. Delight of the contemplation is absolutely complete. All the kites I have seen is unpretentious - made out of different color plastic bags and a couple of flexible pipes, they are very similar in a structure and suggest that one of the many in children's organizations took care of the leisure of the younger generation. I do thank them very much!
Meanwhile, in Cambodia holiday tradition with the launch of kites appeared no later than the IX century (according to the French site http://www.carnetdevol.org). And, for religious purposes were used as normal "flying snakes", and "singing" - with specially attached vibrating strip of bamboo or cane, by the sound of it the monks can predict the future. Another site on the kites of the world: http://www.wokipi.com - recommended - nice texts and photos.
