Travelling around Cambodia is never boring; – if you get tired of looking at the ubiquitous sugar palm, paddy-field, water-buffalo combinations then you can be sure that there’ll be some interesting/unusual/crazy sight right around the next bend. Just drove up from Kampot to Phnom Penh on the excellent and freshly upgraded, (give or take a couple of nearly finished bridges), road to Kampot – national highway number 3. Now only a 3-hour drive, even accounting for Phnom Penh traffic!
Could have stopped the taxi every 500 metres to photo something or another but didn’t so here’s just a few of the un-blurred pix snapped on the ‘sports setting’ as we bumped and weaved through the Takeo and Kandal countryside.

Bit of a dodgy spot for a nap on the public bus to Phnom Penh.
And some more rather precarious seating arrangements on the public minibus.
