Our friend in Siem Reap sent us some photos of Boreak yesterday.

He was a kid when we last said goodbye. A skinny little bundle of energy who couldn’t stop talking. Look at him now, all grown up.

Here he is with Khan, who translated for us during the making of Aki Ra’s Boys. Back then, Boreak was a whole head shorter than Khan. He was also a bit of a problem child who spent all his time trying to not go to school. We’re told he’s very different now. Much more serious and studying hard. His mother must be so proud.
