Lecture Offers “Armchair Travel” to Southeast Asia

By John Leupold

Laos and Cambodia, both former French colonies in Southeast Asia, are full of interesting and beautiful sights—from tropical beaches to sunbaked plains to rolling hills and forested mountains, to the mighty Mekong River.

Part-time San Miguel resident John Leupold has made over 25 visits to these two countries and leads trips to both countries with his business, Champaca Journeys. He’s offering a free lecture on what he’s seen in his many travels on January 16 at the Biblioteca.

While Cambodia is well known for the majestic temples of Angkor Wat, Laos, too, has significant archaeological sites: the enigmatic Plain of Jars and the pre-Angkorian ruins of Champasak. Both countries are home to interesting wildlife, friendly people, atmospheric cities, and many unique sights and events. This talk will discuss travel, history, culture, and social issues that face both countries as they grapple with how to preserve their biological and cultural heritage in the twenty-first century.
