Topics: Money Changer Rates

Money changers are a fact of life in Cambodia where the U.S. dollar is legal currency along with the Cambodian riel.  Many workers, e.g., the Deaf Development Programme staff, are paid in dollars and then will change some or all of that to riel for small transactions.  The rates change daily and one must be observant to choose a money changer that gives a good rate.  Click here to look at the process.

Topics: Oranges 2

It’s not just the oranges that are in season now.  Pomelos are also plentiful and they are one of my favorite fruits.

This woman has two platforms, enough for a good-sized business, but no oranges. She may be waiting for a delivery or she may have used up all she had since she has orange juice for sale.
These women are selling both oranges and pomelos (on the left).
This stand had some oranges (see the juice on top of the cooler) but now all they are selling are a smaller variety of pomelos, a grapefruit-like fruit that is sweeter than a grapefruit and that has sections that can be eaten by hand, without a spoon.
This stand has the really big pomelos!
