The Giant Puppet Show of Siem Reap is a sight to behold. Huge internally lit puppets made by experts and locals alike fill the streets drawing crowds from across the local villages. My utterly favourite point of the evening was at the very beginning, as the 80 strong team of scouts, girls and boys, gathered. Tuning their instruments, straightening their uniforms and bringing the heart beat of their drums for the very first time to a public organised event, not a government organised event. And it was beautiful.
