Museum of Ethnology

Yesterday Elina and I had the honour to visit Dr. Michel Tranet and his family at their house. This is not just any house. It is one of the most beautiful buildings I've ever visited. The atmosphere here is a combination of deep knowledge and respect for the Khmer culture and beauty. Mr. Tranet has had the house built for his family and his collection of historical Khmer artifacts. The house is not only a home but   also a 'Museum of Ethnology'. The house itself, built with wood and stone acts as an example of architecture built according to the local culture and climate. Thank you Michel and Khiang Hei!
