CAMBODIA – doing her very best with the little she’s got.
I took this photo this morning. The road is a relatively new link to Vietnam through Kamchay Mear in Prey Veng Province. Tourists can’t use it. At the moment it’s for goods and everything has to be unloaded at the border and reloaded onto the purchasers vehicle.. A Cambodian man owns this 70cc motorbike. The photo is genuine..I took it at 7am this morning. This sort of sight is common. The purchaser will take his cabinets and mattresses that he bought at the Vietnam border and either sell on the way to Phnom Penh or in the Phnom Penh markets.
If you are trying to work out the weight.. each cabinet is about 2 metres wide and made of strong glass with one shelf in an alloy frame. Although the matresses are foam… have you ever tried lifting a pile of them? He has another 100 kilometres to take them to Phnom Penh.
To survive and succeed in Cambodia men, women and families go to these awe inspiring lengths to make a few dollars. John
