CAMBODIA ~ Kampong Thom Province ~

... Great view showing how a Cambodian man deals with his overloaded bicycle... trying to keep his balance as he transport his bamboo goods o͜͡o... when it comes to traffic in Cambodia, there are no rules... so in an economy with poor transportation, the vendors come to the people...  although more and more basketry is being replaced by plastic items in the everyday life of the Cambodian, you still find the best bamboo baskets are made near Kampot and small rattan baskets are made around Siem Reap.... Thanks a lot Ravindra!! (✿ ♥‿♥)
