7 elephants

So since there is not much to report on the knitting front (we're knitting, we're waiting for plastic eyes; hearing that over and over again is sure to become dull), I've decided to post some random photos of interesting things in and around Phnom Penh. For those of you who live here (or have) this might not be so interesting, but for those of you who haven't, this regular installment could be. So here are the first slices of life in PP:

PP traffic police are well known for their ineptitude and incompetence. When a traffic light goes out and the traffic cops take over, you can expect it to take at least five times as long to get through an intersection. All this changes when a VIP is traveling through. When this happens, these dudes are so swift and professional at stopping all traffic, in every direction, putting hundreds, nay thousands of people to a standstill, its amazing to see them so mobile and active. Until the Big Man zips through at top speed and then they go back to usual sloth like behvaiour.

7 elephants. Don't need to say much about this one except that is a brilliant rip off! Can you count 7 elephants in the logo which is otherwise exactly like a certain chain...

This is just...hmmm. The Gentle Dental Clinic. Its quite new but already it has more clients than the Brutal Dental Clinic just up the street.

  1. I love all these photos! Thanks so much for sharing them. It's really cool to see pics of other cities, especially ones I'll probably never get to see.
