Walking in the small streets of in Phnom Penh, Cambodia

Traveling to Cambodia

This morning after a late breakfast I started a not planned walking journey in the small & chaotic streets of the city. Passing markets, small shops and watching out not being run over by a Hummer or Range Rover. While strolling around I saw a funny way of having your cloths hang out to dry but be sure nobody steals your bra.

Walking in the small street with people living on the streets without anything is in sharp contrast of the river side boulevard where expats, tourists and rich Cambodian enjoyed good live in one of the many (expensive) lounges, restaurants or hotels. A sharp contrast that sobers you up quick (even when not drinking at all) when you see 4 small barley dressed kids sitting under a big brand new Range Rover just eating some fruit that they did find in the garbage that is all over the street. Yes that is also Phnom Penh! The only thing I could do is walk to a nearby shop and buy them some healthy food & drinks and even a small toy.
