It’s often overlooked or just a mere stopover to or from Siem Reap, home of the famous ruins of Angkor Wat but Battambang Cambodia should be on your radar of places to visit in this country. Full of Khmer culture, early 20th century French architecture and a unique charm unlike anywhere else in Cambodia. Join me John Saboe for an exploration in and around Battambang, Cambodia in this episode of Far East Adventure Travel Podcast.
Probably the number one site to visit in Battambang, Cambodia is the world-famous bamboo train. Made from left-over tank wheels, small-powered engines and a bamboo platform it’s a metaphor for the people of this country who’ve adapted and overcome incredible devastation and hardship to their culture and way of life. But this town, the second-largest in the country has so much more to offer. On my last trip through Cambodia I stayed in Battambang for several days exploring the town and discovering it’s charm.
To find out a little bit more about Battambang from a native’s perspective and why it’s so appealing I spoke with artist Kchao Touch, who also owns the wonderfully eclectic Jewel In The Lotus Antique and Arts Shop in the arts quarter.
The sounds of a memorial can quickly fade out to a wedding celebration, sometimes lasting for three days. Most Cambodian weddings are now only celebrated on a single day. This memorial in Battambang lasted for several days.
Another uniquely Southeast Asian tradition respected every day in Battambang is the morning alms. For good luck lay people bring a food offering to the local Buddhist monks that wander the town in return for a blessing. Excerpts from "Bats, Beauty, Arts And Culture-Battambang, Cambodia

BATS AND BONES~
Bats and Bones is IPPY award winning author Jeffrey Hickey's second work for children. This collection of spooky tales for middle school aged children and above is a subtle masterpiece of fright and emotion. Hickey wrote all the stories, the lush music, and does all the voices for the audio book. His wife, Karen Kiser, contributes the cover art, along with some penny whistle and a little piano. The inside illustrations, layout and design are by Rachel Betz, who also designed Hickey's first work for children, Wages Creek.

This is a replay of our show with Noelle Meade-Izzi that originally aired on April 4, 2014. Noelle is an entrepreneur, philanthropist, author, speaker, award-winning graphic designer and renowned Natu-journalist. Her book, The Hummingbird That Answered My Heart’s Calling, is a testament to the power of nature and its ability to teach, heal, and re-connect humans to their true human nature. This gift book is filled with over 40 full-color photographs and a custom designed book cover and interior pages. To her delight, a segment on her experience with Artemis, the hummingbird, was featured in the United States Humane Society (USHS) publication, “All Animals.” But Noelle’s commitment to nature goes well beyond her work as a Natu-journalist. She is leading a crusade to recognize and protect the four POWER POLLINATORS ---bees, birds, butterflies and bats. As the Pollinator Queen, she is a special advocate for the pollinators, offering advice on how to build a hummingbird-friendly backyard habitant, ways to “give back” to the bee nation, methods for protecting and supporting these essential creatures that are critical to our food chain. Noelle’s immediate focus is the bee population which has been decimated by a mysterious die-off not fully identified by scientists. Her goal is to help people see bees for the valued partners they are: harmonious, integrated, unified creatures working tirelessly for the greater good. She unceasingly works to educate as many adults and children as possible, using her company, Beenevolent® as a tool for funding more research; to serve and give back. Noelle perceives the loss of any aspect of nature a spiritual loss as well as a natural one. She spreads her message by Spiritual Pollination.

Source Nation! Join us tonight for Sports Tuesday with Steve Manderson & 2 amazing guests.
At 6:15 join us as Steve welcomes Rick Curti into the studio to discuss The Charlotte Bats, his campaign to bring the Charlotte Bats to Charlotte and why Charlotte can support an MLB Franchise.
When Rick Curti moved to Charlotte, NC 10 years ago, he noticed that Charlotte had the NFL, The NBA but no MLB. Being that Charlotte is the 2nd largest city without MLB and there are tons of transplants from New York, Chicago, California etc. and its population is bigger than 14 cities with MLB, Rick decided about 4 years ago to create the Charlotte Bats with the goal of bringing MLB to Charlotte. This summer Charlotte was picked by Commissioner Rob Manfred along with 8 other cities for expansion. The Carolina Panthers are the talk of the Sports World and is bringing lots of attention to this growing city. Tune in tonight to hear Rick's plans for Charlotte.
At 7:15 join Steve as he welcomes Former MLB Mark Hadden into the studio to discuss his Organization, Next Level Sports WorldWide Inc.
Next Level Sports, Worldwide Inc, in partnership with NBA icon, Darryl L. "Chocolate Thunder" Dawkins, was created to enable youth and adult athletes/students to attend and go to college and fulfill their dreams and goals. Mr. Mark Hadden National/International talent scout formed "Next level Sports" in 1993. While in Los angles, CA playing in the L.A Pro Summer league with N.B.A Hall of Fame, Ervin "Magic" Johnson. Hadden, a big fan and supporter of Magic Johnson, saw a need for youth who are not receiving proper teaching and not motivated to step up. Hadden started his organization to build up youth self-esteem and guidance for students/athletes set for going to college and expanding their horizons educationally and athletically.
