"Mourners braving the rain to pay their respects to the former King of Cambodia outside the Royal Palace"
Taken by: Vicky

Some quick context:
The former King of Cambodia died 2 weeks ago and I have been amazed at the outpouring of love for this man. He was deeply revered by the people and many braved rain, distance and expense to come to the palace to pay their respects. Cambodians love the King deeply for securing the country's independence from France and he was referred to as King Father by the people and referred to Cambodians as his 'children.'
