  • Hands of the Earth strong like gigantic spider legs, holding into temples built by men in Angkor Wat, Cambodia, centuries ago. Slowly the planet is recovering the land, poor land, abused by men in their greed and exploitation. Today when you look to the amazing landscape, you know that the Earth is winning the battle at least in one far away corner of the world. Perhaps it is just the beginning. It is the hope that the living Earth decided to take back what was stolen from her. Her hands are so powerful that could destroy every little memory of the human presence in the temples of Angkor Wat. Temples of prayers, temples of enjoyment are falling to the ground. The sound of every stone tumbling down is a song of victory sung by the trees in Cambodia.
