OOOOOOOOh Lovely !
Look at this picture. A charming glimpse of Cambodian Rural aquaculture being carried out on the wide expanses of the famous Mekong River right ?
That shot was taken in Boeng Tompoung (a lake on the outskirts of Phnom Penh ) about 200m to the left of this outfall /wier ;
Jesus – are those fish traps in the picture ? And what IS that foam ?
And that wier was fed from this “creek” that was running directly out of Central Phnom Penh ;
Is that creek glowing or is it just my eyes ?
My work colleague Narin tells me these aquatic herbs ( Morning Glory ) are ending up in a Khmer dish called Trokurn so I will not be eating that any time soon and it was a stark reminder that all that glitters in Cambodia is not gold…..
Oh ….and here is a lovely example of how property development laws work here ;
Want to build a “waterfront” apartment block ? No worries – just do it.
All in all a very interesting afternoon cruising around taking photos !
