A first rehearsal for the ceremonies which will take place for the cremation of King Norodom Sihanouk (
for the tribute paid by the public to the King after his death last October) was organised today in front of the Royal Palace and the nearly completed 1.2 million dollar funeral pyre building. Kong Sam Ol, Minister at the Royal Palace, and Tea Banh, Deputy Prime Minister and Minister for National Defence, held an inspection round. Another rehearsal will be held on January 26th. The actual ceremonies will be held between February 1st and 4th and some 1.5 million people are expected to attend.
If everything works out as planned I will make a photography iBook about King Norodom Sihanouk available on the iTunes Bookstore soon after.
