Virtual: Captivating Cambodia - Phnom Penh: Vibrant Capital, Turbulent History

Date: August 24, 2020
Time: 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm

Since the French colonization of Cambodia, Phnom Penh has been the capital of Cambodia and, in the 1920s, was considered “one of the loveliest French-built cities in Indochina.” Today, Tek takes us on a guided visit of “his” city – once nicknamed, the "Pearl of Asia" – as we visit some of the its stunning sites, learn about its dark history, and see how it is flourishing today.

Would you like to still travel? Now you can without leaving your home – just stay still! In this new series, let us and our program partner – the Osher Marin JCC (San Rafael, CA) – whisk you away for an "armchair adventure" on an interesting, educational & fun live, guided group tour in a destination beyond your front door ...even beyond the grocery store! Forget the long, masked airplane ride, let us take you there by Zoom, where a local, professional guide from a distant destination will take us to explore a site or topic. Yes, we will Zoom across the time zones to be with him/her. Live Q&A, photos, graphics and video clips (when available) will transport us to the destination! Your ticket purchase helps support our special guests – professional guides – who are mostly or completely out of work.
