Some stories and a recipe to follow, but in the mean time, here are some photo impressions from our stay in Kratie, Cambodia.
At the street market in Kratie, fruit and veg for sale
A big vegetable stand at the market
The rainy season doesn’t mess around in Kratie. We experienced intense storms pretty much every day we were there.
Matching two piece outfits that – to my eye – look like pajamas seem to be all the rage among older women in Kratie. A woman in such a suit shops for more at a market.
Lumpy people crossing
Rain and more rain. The view from one of our breakfast spots.
Live chickens strapped to the back of a bike. They seemed pretty resigned to the situation.
Someone left a simple offering of coconuts, incense and flowers in the brush by the river
Incongruous: One house had a shiny new Lexus with US plates parked behind metal gates. Note the German Shepard in the background coming to bark at me. 🙂
Pigs in a basket
Typical house on stilts along the road leading out of the city
House overlooking rice paddies and the Mekong river. (I like the cat in the window. 🙂 )
Little person, big magazine
