Here I am enjoying swimming in a favorite manmade waterfall area deep in the country of Cambodia. Many people wanted to talk to me. Many people approached my friend and asked him how do I stay so white. "I want to be like him" they said. If they only knew what I go through living in Syracuse, NY they would stay dark skinned. The Cambodians, like the Vietnamese, admire and want white skin. Many of us Americans want darker skin. It seems to me that people just want things they can't have.
