What the….?

This is one of those scenes that are rather inscrutable to us foreigners. This is a man in the parking lot of St. Joseph Church—connected with the church, I don’t know–doing something with 70 to 80 gallons of gasoline in plastic jerry cans. To a Cambodian, there’s probably a logical explanation, e.g., he’s buying cheaper (smuggled?) gasoline in Phnom Penh and carrying it to one of the provinces where his brother-in-law sells it in two-liter Coke bottles from a stand on the highway in front of the family home. Not something familiar to most of the foreigners here but it–or a similar scenario–makes perfect sense to the locals.
