At the beginning of this week we temporarily said goodbye to the staff at APLE for a two week transcription period away.
We decided to go to a quiet and calm island, Koh Rong Samloem, to transcribe. Phnom Penh has been very crowded and noisy which has affected our sleep. The environment here is not too bad!
The transcription process has been surprisingly valuable to us; it included a lot of information that got lost during the interviews. Due to a great amount of new information and some difficulties hearing, we were not able to apprehend all details at the time of the interviews.
A story from the interviews that touched us this week:
Next week we will continue to write and transcribe!
