Via Buddhism Adjunkt, who is back after a little absence, a link to an article on The Lost Pepper of Cambodia, by Phil Lees. Unfortunately the article, in Chile Pepper magazine, won’t be available online for at least six months. So all I can do is quote from Phil’s tantalizing blog entry:
What does the visit of Chinese emissary Zhou Daguan to Angkor Wat in 1297, Khmer Rouge kidnappings and the recent landgrabbing of Okhna Ly Yong Phat in rural Sre Ambel, Cambodia have in common?
Cambodian pepper: which is how I tenuously link them all together in this month’s Chile Pepper magazine (US).
That, and hope I remember to check Chile Pepper when the six months are up. Or maybe someone else can enlighten us?
