SIEM REAP | Along the way ..

The first Monday in the first week of 2010, schools re-opened, new and not so new students will be going to school and colleges.

Roads will obviously be busier than usual.

But when I was in Siem Reap, Cambodia, I don't think there is such a heavy traffic jam. As most of the road users are either on two-wheeled or three-wheeled vehicles, hence they can just manoeuvre easily on the road.

Just look at the gas station above, it's almost deserted, but I like this "aura" looks like those in the film. This photo was taken whilst on a moving tuk-tuk (3-wheeled vehicle) along the bumpy and dusty road here.

Some might prefer riding those cosy air-conditioned tour buses. But at this time around I prefer the local tuk-tuk, feeling the cool air brushes your faces, smelling the fresh aroma of the countrysides's air, and hearing those bells and whistles of Cambodia.

After about an hour or so on the bumpy road, you then reached the destination with a gleeming smiles from the local traders.

One of the hand painted signage, I think it says something about WC or thereabout.
