Our driver on the bamboo train in Battambang, a man of few words
Genuine and pure, if there is one thing Cambodians never forget to give away to anyone, foreigners and fellow locals, it’s a smile, and if we think about the stormy past they’ve had and their current tough life conditions, we realize that we can only learn from their attitude and way to face life.
Here are the pictures I managed to snap around, hope you enjoy the ride in the company of the people of Cambodia!
