Today is another adventure. I have many photos for you on that post. 21 photos for you to understand the lifestyle of the people living over there.
We went to Tonle Sap Lake and Kampong Khleang (fishing village). The Lake is an important commercial resource, providing more than half of the fish consumed in Cambodia. In harmony with the specialized ecosystems, the human occupations at the edges of the lake is similarly distinctive – floating villages, towering stilted houses, huge fish traps, and an economy and way of life deeply intertwined with the lake, the fish, the wildlife and the cycles of rising and falling waters boats ride on the lake.
It is quite amazing to see how people live in those stilt houses ( can be up to 10 m/ 33 ft high). They have to protect themselves as in the rainy season ( Mid-May through October), the rising water of the Mekong cause the flow of the Sap river to reverse and also the lake surface area increases.
That water does not seem so clean but this is all they have to wash themselves and their clothing.
Our day was not finish , we had more temples to see. Beng Mealea. The movie Indiana Jones was filmed there.
We came from far way to see another world and I can only be thankful I took so many photos to remember and share with you.
Thanks for reading. Always happy to read your comments. Next week, more on Cambodia…
