A Cambodian Family

A Cambodian Family

The average household size in Cambodia is 4.7. In my boyfriends family, there are ten people. That’s right – a mother, father, six sons and two daughters. The kids range in age from 13 – 35, so there is quite a big age gap! As you can tell, most of Seyla’s brothers look like him. If I am not wearing my glasses I often mistake them for Seyla! A couple of weeks ago I went to Seyla’s mothers house to take a photo for our visa application. I didn’t want to let this opportunity go to waste, so I took more photos than required so I could print them for Seyla’s mother and frame one for her. Although four of her children have moved out of home, they are still a close-knit family, so when we wanted to get everyone together for these photos they dropped everything to be there. Now THAT’S a good family!

I just had to take this photo as it reminded me of The Brady Bunch
