I was thrilled to see the King of Cambodia, King Norodom Sihamoni, twice yesterday as he drove by with his motorcade
I love some of the street names here, besidews the hundreds and hundreds of streets that are just numbers. I bought some books and visited a gallery on street 240 the other day. Now reading Bob Dylan's Chronicles Volume 1 and Tom Robbins' Still Life With Woodpecker. I mean the streets with names like Mao Tse Tung Boulevard, Russian Boulevard, Charles DeGaul Boulevard, and like that.
These cute little kids are some of my neighborhood friends here along Sisowath Quay in Phnom Penh, Cambodia.
Their parents spend most of the time on the sidewalk just down the street from my hotel. Their dad has just one leg and like many childeren here, sells cheap copies of books to tourists from a basket that hangs from his neck.
