I’ve just spend a fabulous fortnight in Cambodia. Angkor Wat at sunrise, floating markets at sunset, tuk tuk drivers with broad, Cheshire Cat smiles, succulent Khmer curries. It’s a damaged country, but its pulling through, head held high. Oh, and sunshine and heat – 37 degrees.

Thank you P&G, thank you Style.
