Hello from Central Cambodia,
Kampong Thom may be a small city. But it’s also a city of lively contrasts.
A constant flow of determined traffic crosses the steel arch bridge that spans the Steung Saen River. In the shadow of the bridge, a lone fisherman silently casts his net from a tiny wooden boat.
The traffic across the bridge is brisk. Vehicles vary in size and speed. Yet without the assistance of traffic lights at the four-way intersections, the trucks, buses, cars, vans, and motorbikes sort themselves out, effortlessly, courteously and safely.
