Norlha in Cambodia
In October 2006, the core Norlha team traveled to Siem Reap, Cambodia to train in weaving. Some on the team had never been further than Labrang, let alone left the country. They stayed in Cambodia for four months and were plunged into a new world where they learned not only weaving and spinning, but how to ride a bicycle and cook from strange ingredients. They saw the ocean, beautiful houses, ancient temples, crocodiles and westerners sun bathing on beaches. They returned with new ideas and a new understanding of the world.
