A life lived well by Kristi Bryant

In a temple in Cambodia, this lady was selling incense to tourists. She smiled broadly until I asked to take her photo- where she covered her mouth with her hands. I mistook her action for shyness- when I looked again, her teeth were stained from years of chewing beetlenut. The lines on her face tell a story- there aren’t many from her generation that survived Pol Pot’s Regime.
