    That true. Now I feel I missed out a lot about khmer culture and has no clue about it. But I am learning. I haven't got a chance to go to khmer temple yet I need to do that one day. It is kind sad as I think of it.

    Ok, well I am a US citizen now. I used to live in France and left in 1987. I have my grandparents, aunts, uncles, and cousins live in France and their own home, but no parents. They are all French citizen, except my grandparents. I still have my old documents to show that I used to live in France including a French birth certificate that French issued for me when I lived there. So now you know, what do I do to get back to live in France legally. Can you help. I would appreciate very much.

    where do you live in US, because you need to apply a visa to French consulate (not French Embassy).

    http://www.ambafrance-us.org/spip.php?rubrique102

    I think that you need some documents from your family in France, but French Consulate will inform you better than me !!! Feel free to ask me if you want any helps !!!
