Monks on a Mountain

Who says monks can’t have a day out?  I took these pictures of a group of young monks on an apparent pilgrimage to Phnom Kulen more than 50k from Phnom Penh.  The mountain is sacred to the Khmer who venerate a cneturies-old sculpture of a lying Budhha hewn out of solid rock on the summit of a mountain.  It is interesting to see these young monks taking pictures and seemingly enjoying themselves while at the same time performing their religious duties.
