It was really a great event.
They set a tent out of the water station with a tent and hundreds of chairs under it.
The opening event was backed by the assistance of many personalities: the Minister of Education, the Province Governor, the District Governor, several deputies, a representative from the Japanese cooperation (as donors of the water station), and a group of monks. Almost all the people from Thmar Puok and us.
The tent was full and several speeches led to the opening of the water station per se, brightly embellished by our exhibition. A red carpet escorted by two lines of traditionally dressed young beautiful ladies took the authorities to the ribbon cutting ceremony. Greetings, congratulations, effusive hand-shakings, cell-phone exchanges to take more and more pictures and some TV cameras.The moment was thoroughly registered.
As a quaint note, when we introduced our project to the authorities, we found out that the Province Governor was in love with the Spanish city of Córdoba and he had visited it several times. A gentleman with an exquisite taste.
