If you're still reading, here's the final part of my 3 part series... For our 3rd day project, we headed to a village about 40 mins drive away from Battambang town... The rows and rows of congested shophouse buildings fade in the landscape and was replaced by the view of stilts homes and straw homes (pictured below).
This reminded me of the story of the Big Black Wolf that could huff and puff and blow the house down. It looked like the straw house in that nursery tale which the wolf blew down at his 1st attempt. How do they weather the heavy rain and crazy heat in these?! Some of us sleep in aircon 24/7. We are indeed blessed.
A very slim cow (most of the cattleherds looked like this, I did not deliberately chose the skinniest of the lot to photograph). I understand that most steaks that you eat in western joints in Cambodia serves really tough steaks. When you see where it came from, you know why.
It was indeed a good trip for me, getting in touch with the real world. Sometimes living in an urban city, with rules and laws to guide us can cause us to live in an often too-beautified world to realise how the poverty-stricken world battles with legal unfairness and the struggle to meet daily neccessities.
