"Smarter Aid, not more Aid!"

Alnwickdote No 17: What goes around, comes around!


Sharks Fin Soup on open sale in Phnom Penh's popular St 63, November 2015. I kg dried Sharks Fin is on display for $180 at O'Russey Market.  I have tweeted to @WWF

Two things happened recently that took me back to 1998 and my first year in Cambodia.  One was this advertisement for Sharks Fin Soup.  The other was my inability to track down a prominent Cambodian NGO leader.  She has been off yet again on an overseas trip, another conference.  Is this not a recurring same old story of high-living Lords and Ladies of Poverty?
