Today two representatives from Extraordinary Horizons, a deaf group in Singapore, took a taxi to Kampot for a meeting with Cambodia organizations working with deaf people. Here Wei Ling and Johnson (red shirts) talk with some of the Epic Arts staff.

At lunch time, the participants at the morning meeting took a quick tuk-tuk ride to the Epic Arts Cafe for lunch. The cafe has several people with disabilities and deaf people as their staff.

Johnson and Wei Ling
Johnson and Wei Ling had several opportunities to ride in tuk-tuks, something they can't do in Singapore.

A new class at Epic Arts
This week a new class of twelve students began a two-year study in performing arts at Epic Arts. Here the group meets to learn Cambodia Sign Language so that they can communicate with the deaf participants.

Leaving for Phnom Penh
At the end of the day, Wei Ling and Johnson took a tuk-tuk back to the Epic Arts Cafe where they were to meet their taxi for the return trip to Phnom Penh. Hang Kimchhorn (right), the deaf coordinator for Krousar Thmey, rode back with them.
