World trip portraits 3

The village chief's wife. I had dinner with the chief one evening while I was going nuts on malaria drugs, dining on store-bought spring rolls and fried intestines. I don't think she was too pleased with her picture either.

Rob from Manchester, in Siem Reap near Angkor Wat.

I took the Trans-Siberian Railway across Russia, Mongolia and China. This is Karin, a fellow passenger. A calm Swede.

Karin and her boyfriend.

A man from Hong Kong.

Mem, a Bangkok barmaid.
