Working with new friends

Claire Phillippi
We have been asked to ponder about the pilgrim tourist dichotomy. As a tourist.As a tourist I would never have been able to walk intro some bodies house which is as big as my bedroom,but with far less stuff. I would have gladly let anybody in my home. I don’t feel like a tourist when I get this pleasure. Here in Cambodia I feel at home. I love learning Khmer. As a pilgrim I enjoy talking to the servants. I enjoy living here with these beautiful people. It makes me feel more like a pilgrim. I feel changed.
