18 au 22/4 – Siem Reap et les temples d’Angkor

  • Les temples d’Angkor

Non, je ne vous énumérerai pas tous les temples que nous avons visités pendant 4 jours complets et je vous épargnerai la description détaillée de chacun d’entre eux ! ouf, vous l’avez échappé belle !!! Avec l’aide de Samet, notre guide pour l’ensemble de ces sites, nous découvrons la grandeur de la civilisation khmère.

Nous avions peur d’être un peu lassés par les visites successives de  ces temples, mais chacun présente une architecture particulière et dégage une atmosphère bien spécifique et en dépit de la fatigue et d’une chaleur implacable (autour de 40°), nous ne regrettons pas d’y avoir consacré tout ce temps. De nombreux sites ont été restaurés, ou sont en cours de restauration avec l’aide de fonds étrangers – dont la France – mais il reste encore beaucoup à faire car le Cambodge compte plusieurs centaines de temples historiques.

La période d’Angkor s’étend de 802 à 1432. L’empire khmer était alors  puissant et étendu; chaque dieu-roi (représentant terrestre du dieu hindou Shiva) a voulu marquer son empreinte en construisant des sanctuaires tous plus grandioses les uns que les autres. Les maisons et bâtiments publics de l’époque, construits en bois, ont disparu. Seuls ont survécu les édifices sacrés, construits en brique et en pierre, et classés au patrimoine mondial depuis 1992. Depuis des siècles – et jusqu’à une période très récente – ces édifices ont été l’objet de destructions, reconstructions, pillages…Religions hindouiste et bouddhiste se sont succédées, chacune voulant effacer les traces de la précédente…De nombreuses sculptures sont en partie découpées, les “morceaux” étant “partis” vers des pays étrangers pour y être vendus ! Les éléphants n’ont plus de trompe, les lions ont perdu leur tête…Nombre d’objets d’art ont aussi disparu. Afin d’enrayer ce pillage massif, la plupart des statues originales ou objets précieux sont maintenant mis à l’abri et nous n’en verrons donc que des copies (certains originaux sont cependant visibles au musée national de Phnom Penh ou au musée Guimet à Paris).

Mais la magie des lieux est toujours là. On reste stupéfait par l’architecture et la grandeur des bâtiments où cours et galeries entourent une cour centrale. On s’émerveille devant la finesse des sculptures ou des bas-reliefs qui racontent la religion hindoue et les guerres. Bernard est je crois tombé amoureux des sculptures de danseuses Apsara…

Nous avons eu la chance de visiter Angkor Vat et Angkor Thom – deux sites majeurs – en fin de journée, sous une belle lumière douce.

Et que dire de ces temples où la jungle a repris ses droits ? de vrais décors de films…c’est d’ailleurs dans l’un de ceux-ci, à Beng Melea que Jean-Jacques Annaud a tourné son film “les deux frères”.

  • Et à part les temples ?

Il faut savoir que la culture cambodgienne traditionnelle a été presque anéantie par les Khmers rouges. Les nouvelles générations se réapproprient peu à peu les savoir-faire des anciens. Des “chantiers écoles” enseignent la sculpture sur bois ou sur pierre à de jeunes cambodgiens issus de milieux défavorisés. De même une ferme séricole (créée à l’initiative de la France qui s’est retirée du projet lorsque la ferme est devenue économiquement autonome) enseigne toutes les étapes de la fabrication de la soie : culture des mûriers, élevage des vers, teinture et tissage. Tout le travail est réalisé manuellement, dans des conditions parfois difficiles : ici, pas de syndicats ni de CHSCT !

Nous avons pu également assister

à un spectacle de danses Apsara (danses khmères),

des costumes superbes, une gestuelle très codifiée et toute en délicatesse.

 

 

Ah ! se promener en “tuk-tuk” dans les rues de Siem Reap ! Le prix de la course fait toujours l’objet de discussions plus ou moins longues, mais une fois que l’on tombe d’accord sur le prix, on n’y revient pas…enfin, normalement car, après avoir “âprement” discuté, l’un de nous trois finissait souvent par trouver que le prix de la course était bien bas, ou que le tuk-tuk était dans un tel état qu’il fallait aider son propriétaire, ou que le chauffeur de tuk-tuk était tellement sympathique qu’on pouvait bien lui donner un peu plus… Hélène et moi avions fini par nous attacher les services d’un chauffeur de tuk-tuk qui nous disait “pour vous, c’est vous qui me dites quel prix vous voulez me payer !!!”

(oui, oui, c’est bien Bernard au volant du tuk-tuk…mais juste le temps de la photo !)

DSC06298 Nous avons ainsi pu faire du shopping à Siem Reap (je ne sais pas pourquoi, Bernard n’a pas voulu nous suivre ce jour-là !…), emmenées à droite et à gauche par notre chauffeur de tuk-tuk préféré ! Et, croyez-moi, les tentations ne manquent pas à Siem Reap, l’artisanat cambodgien est fin et de bonne qualité : soieries diverses, vêtements, marionnettes de théâtre d’ombres en cuir, reproductions de sculptures…

Heureusement que nous ne disposions que d’une seule journée !

 

Demain nous quittons Siem Reap, ses temples, son artisanat…et ses chauffeurs de tuk-tuk !

    Scandalous incident with the Ukrainian clinic of surrogate medicine

    Good morning everybody. The team of columnists found a lot of clients, which BioTexCom deceived. We managed to find dissatisfied clients. We are cheated customers of BioTexCom organization of reproductive medicine. When was the renewed occasion with them, when BioTexCom cheated them, we desire to write as much notices as it possible and to support them. We did a great job and find a lot of incidents of negative feedback of clinic BioTexCom. All of them you should search in network on request « biotexcom notices ». We decided to lend a hand them and help them. With our public help, fewer folk will turn to tricksters.

    Beneath you can find information from man who have fallen in furnishings, which were connected with BioTexCom services.

    They asked journalists to help them. Oliver and Jane help them and in team we are finding data and processed it. With suggest journalist help they compose this article. Thanks for the support Oliver and Jane.

    When youthful mothers haven’t chances to have babies, they approach to the surrogacy companies. Many of them are placed in Eastern Europe. One of the famous reproductive medicine firms is BioTexCom. There are some of people in Europe, who use maintaince of them. If to read biotexcom reviews, is it probable to find any of malevolent researches.

    Last time this clinic became famous cause of they don’t use DNA one of people. This clinic makes many of operation without needful circumstances. A lot of persons from Germany, Estonia, Romania are visit Ukraine and pick up babies.

    You can read reviews from Cecilia Rizzika, who is Italian advocate. He told that at first his customers in 2010 come to BioTexCom and visit agency. At firm medic provided a surrogate mom, who shall impregnate with the cum of the future parent, but semen wasn’t keep on. About situation future mother and father obtain information after test. Outlay of procedure was 30.000 euros.

    However one of the fact consisted in baby who were taken to The Republic of Poland and Romania. In Ukraine a criminal case has been public for the clinic. Also was founded data that a lot of children were conceived from void mothers who obtain a diagnosis of « infertility 1 degree ».

    Therefore to the Prosecutor General’s Office of Ukraine BioTexCom is functioning in 2 large cities of Ukraine. They find any people who need money and suggest them. A lot of managers of office are working in Kiev in Kirovograd. The second town is one of the most oppressive areas all over the country. But guilty group, organized by a townsman of Moldova and Germany didn’t defray taxes a lot of months. In Italy some of humans know BioTexCom excellent. This firm is being dispute at forums. More data you can however search about this situation at link here Biotexcom Experience .

    Firm also use fearful conditions. In 2012 Ms. Maria from Vinnitsa suggested for the program of surrogacy and became badly with hepatitis B. As she shown, every time she asked about reward and under the contact company should to pay her 200 EUR every month for subsistence, vitamins, medical supplies. For every period of childbearing, she need to receive 1200 euros. All this cash young miss didn’t receive. When later Italian family come to Maria, specialists said that she has posers with gestation and it is necessary to pay 8000 euros and to make investigation. Also, how later young girl found out, this kind of research wasn’t necessary to do. Further this in 24 weeks young mother have different issues with her soundness. Maria said: “I come to doctors in infirmary and they said that I have disease”. About this situation you can also read more at Biotexcom Review .

    Today a lot of people all over the world know that they shouldn’t give credence to the BioTexCom firm. A lot of clients who used services of this firm don’t advice to use services of BioTexCom. In biotexcom are working swindlers. Our estimate of company job – 1/10 points. All people need be sure, that this clinic works as inequitable organization. You need also to know that in clinic are working a lot of technical specialists who deleted some recalls. We want to give you advice. Never use services of BioTexCom if you don’t wish to be combined with criminal or different problems.

    Now BioTexCom is one of the biggest companies. Actually, small clinics in Ukraine don’t allow to do the same things. The main reason – they assessmented of their reputation and don’t desire let down it.

    Furthermore we recommend to read and research articles in european media, which we are finding. There you could find judgments and guilt from Prosecutor General’s Office of Ukraine and opinions from other people about this clinic.

    Also we are searching critiques from managers who were arranged in BioTexCom. We are finding doctors who were arranged in BioTexCom. Doctors confirm that BioTexCom use other ways to fool folr all over the world. They also said that specialists don’t care about clients health.

    1. People who are working is not officially working. Actually they asked doctors from other clinics to do the procedure.
    2. This maintaince doesn’t have enough medical facilities. Any doctors must to do operations by their arms. It’s unusual.
    3. Maintain which cost $39.000 doesn’t define the sex of the kid. Actually other specialists do it for free and could say needful information.
    4. In videos which are shown for clients BioTexCom people should see elite apartments. It’s not true.
    5. Also specialists of BioTexCom said they are whole maternity clinic. In fact, they are renting 2 ameliorated wards in the municipal enterprise Kyiv Maternity Hospital №3. And in the video they exaggerate and show this state agency as their clinic.

    Tonights Must See Monday with Eric Newton offered a great look at the future of journalism. By looking at how journalism has progressed over time, he showed us how we can take that same pattern and apply it to the future. The predictions he brought up were amazing and so advanced it’s crazy to think of society functioning like that one day. And being here at ASU as a journalism student makes me excited for the future and the prospect of being a part of this great future. Some people may think that these advancements may ruin journalism but I think that these will help journalism and get more people even more news faster than ever before. The future is bright for journalism and as long as technology makes great advancements then journalism will be right there with it. I’m excited to be part of the future of journalism and the road it will possibly go down.
